CHRISTUS COVID-19 Resources

As your healthcare partner, CHRISTUS Health wants to assure you that we are fully equipped to provide safe, quality care to our community. We are here for you today and for a healthier tomorrow. We are ready!

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

During these challenging times, uncertainty can cause added stress and uneasiness. Please know that The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio is here with you — and for you. As the only freestanding children’s hospital in San Antonio dedicated to mothers-to-be and children, we are leading the way to ensure that our patients and their families can feel confident coming to our hospital and clinics for safe, world-class care.

As we continue our COVID-19 response, the safety and well-being of your family and our care teams continue to be our top priorities. Our teams are expertly trained and dedicated to serving you. Regardless of your child’s medical need — whether they require surgery, ongoing specialty care or emergency services — you can have peace of mind in knowing we are ready to provide the same great care that you have come to expect from us. 

We know that for many children, surgery is not something that is “elective” or that can be delayed. That’s why we have a team of physicians who review every case to ensure each child receives surgical care, as soon as it is needed. Additionally, we have implemented pre-screening and pre-testing measures to ensure that we have a COVID-19 safe surgical environment for patients and our Associates.

We Are Here for You

The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio also stands ready to care for patients with COVID-19 symptoms. Our experts in infectious diseases and emergency medicine are well informed about this new coronavirus disease as well as many other diseases. Our entire team is prepared to respond quickly and appropriately if you suspect that your child may have COVID-19 or any health condition that requires emergency medical attention.

These are times that require courage, clarity and calm. We are here for you and your family. You can trust us for support and strength, whatever the health issue. Together, we will survive this pandemic and be stronger for the experience.  Just as our Sisters who founded this ministry in the midst of a health care crisis 150 years ago, we are called each day to make a difference in the lives of our community.
