Our Approach

For over 80 years, CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances has been known as the “baby” hospital of East Texas. With our annual number of births over 2,500 we are dedicated, as a faith-based organization, to helping ensure that every parent’s vision for their newborn – new life, new dreams, new hope – has the chance to be fulfilled.

In November 2008, through the generous support and involvement of the community, CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances opened the first Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in Tyler, Texas. The NICU now makes it possible to offer the state-of-the-art technology, facilities and skilled staff required to provide compassionate, quality care to both healthy babies and those born too sick or too soon, right here close to home and the support system of family and friends. By giving families local access to this level of medical care, we can eliminate the additional stress associated with travel, food and lodging expenses, and “missed work days” incurred when a newborn is transferred to another city.

When expecting the last thing you want to worry about is how your baby will be cared for. We focus on making sure a mother’s delivery and a newborn’s NICU stay does not become a financial burden on a family, so they may focus on getting well and going home.

We accept ALL insurance plans with in-and-out-of-network benefits. For more information regarding insurance coverage for Maternal Child services provided at CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances, please call (903) 531-5726.
