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

COVID-19 has changed the world as we know it in many ways, but our commitment to caring for our community is just as strong, just as fierce, as it was when CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic opened its doors in 1937. Then and now, our ministry continues to be a safe place for all to receive quality care.

We understand the need for social distancing and taking steps to limit risk of exposure to COVID-19. However, it is still important to put your health first and seek the care you need, especially in the case of an emergency. Call your doctor when you are sick, keep your annual screening appointments and most importantly, don’t ignore signs of a serious condition, like a heart attack or stroke. We are here and we are ready to care for you no matter what.

Taking care of you and your loved ones is what we do. Which is why we work so hard to ensure that our hospitals, emergency rooms and clinics remain safe places to receive exceptional, compassionate care.

Safety First

The safety of our patients, Associates and physicians is our top priority. That’s why we successfully practice infection prevention every day. To keep all who enter our facilities safe during COVID-19 we have added the following precautions:

  • Limiting visitors to one essential (caretaker) person
  • Screening everyone who comes through our doors
  • Random temperature checks for Associates
  • Requiring everyone in our facilities to wear masks
  • Offering telemedicine services includes, telephone and video visits

We’re in this Together

This may be an unprecedented time, but we have experienced many of these since CHRISTUS was founded 154 years ago. In fact, the first three Sisters who started our ministry in Galveston faced an epidemic of Yellow Fever within the first six months of opening the very first hospital.

Epidemics and tragedies have been part of our history, and so too has the resolve, after each of those challenges, to move on in love and service to those in need. We stand today in a rich history that gives us confidence that, with God’s help, we can do the same.

We are answering the call to help our community – today and tomorrow. In all that we do, we are devoted to keeping you, your families, our caregivers and our Associates safe. And we are here when you need care. We are ready.

Emergency Care

While COVID-19 is new, our processes and procedures in place for infection prevention and preventing the spread of illness are not. Our Emergency Departments are equipped to safely provide care for life-threatening illness and injury – and seeking that care is essential. Do not postpone seeking care if you are urgently ill.  Go to the Emergency Department or call 9-1-1
