Bringing the best and brightest together for the hearts of East Texas
CHRISTUS Health and CardiaStream (Cardiovascular Associates of East Texas) have partnered to form the largest cardiology group in East Texas. Cardiastream joins CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic Cardiology, becoming a part of the CHRISTUS Heart and Vascular Institute, combining more than 250 years of practice-based cardiac care with the world-class care from the CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Health System.
