New CT Scanner at CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital Sulphur Springs

October 15, 2023 – Sulphur Springs, TX – Healthcare and community members gathered on Thursday, October 12 to celebrate the unveiling of the new CT Scanner at CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs.   The event marks the culmination of the two-year project which required a room to be specially lined and renovated to accommodate the new equipment.  

The scanner was purchased by CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs and the Hopkins County Health Care Foundation.

The day was marked with comments from Foundation Chair Maleta Reynolds and CMF-SS Chief Nursing Officer Anitha Sanderson.  A blessing of the equipment was provided by Fr. Justin Wylie, manager of pastoral care, which also involved Andy Navarro, vice president of mission integration at CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances, and Sister Rose Marikudi, member of the Sisters of the Mother of Mount Carmel.

During Reynold’s comments, she mentioned the benefit the community receives due to the Hopkins County Hospital District, CMF-SS, and the Foundation working together to provide the best local healthcare for citizens.

Sanderson shared the need for the new CT Scanner, which is the second one in use at CMF-SS.  She said that it had been estimated prior to purchase that the new CT scanner would be used at least 7 times a day.  Currently, it is averaging 9 times per day.  And the need is expected to continue to increase.
