TYLER - Trinity Mother Frances Hospitals and Clinics and CHRISTUS Health have announced the finalization of an agreement that brings together the two health systems and will create CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Health System.
CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances will remain headquartered in Tyler, and will continue to be a hub for services and the foundation of CHRISTUS Health's expansion in Northeast Texas.
The strategic plan of CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances envisions growth of the organization across East Texas and throughout the region.
"This joining of two distinguished health systems will greatly strengthen both organizations, improving access to care for patients and expanding each organization's service offerings. Most importantly, it will increase the capacity and ability to meet the ever-growing health care needs of East Texans through increased resources and innovative services," a release from the organization reads.
The Catholic order of the Sisters of The Holy Family of Nazareth has become a third sponsoring congregation of CHRISTUS Health, in addition to its two founding sponsoring congregations, the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word of Houston and the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word of San Antonio.
The Trinity Mother Frances Foundation will remain and will continue to stay within the Tyler community.
