Our Approach

Pat Heard Women's Center

If you are expecting, you want to have your baby at a hospital you trust. Now, CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Tyler offers a new state-of-the-art facility just for women that combines the quality care mothers have trusted for generations with the latest amenities.

At the Pat Herd Women’s Center at CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances, the highly trained team of medical providers has pledged to deliver an exceptional care experience to every mother. With more than 2,500 newborns delivered here each year and Tyler’s only Level III neonatal intensive care unit, you can truly feel confident in the decision you made for you and your baby, should the need for a higher level of medical care arise.

At 32-weeks gestation, we encourage expectant mothers to schedule an appointment and meet with our Patient Care Planner to create an individualized Birth Plan of Care. There is no charge for this service and it takes approximately one hour to complete. The Birth Plan of Care is kept with your hospital chart so we may better meet your needs during your stay with us.

Please call (903) 606-4641 to schedule your appointment.
