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.

They have served the heart care needs of Northeast Texas for many years and are proud to join forces once again to continue their legacy of care.
This partnership provides access to more than 70 cardiovascular specialists throughout Northeast Texas with 13 practice locations, an outpatient cath lab and 14 highly trained clinician specialists. Our patients will experience faster, easier access to the region’s best heart care.
