Your Health is Our #1 Priority

As we continue to receive updates from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding the spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant, we want you and your family to feel assured that our physicians, nurses, and staff will continue to do everything possible to keep you healthy, safe and informed. 

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

COVID-19 Vaccine

The vaccine is still our greatest defense in the fight against COVID-19. The COVID-19 Vaccine booster shot serves the purpose of not only strengthening that protection but also safeguarding you against new variants of the virus. Getting vaccinated not only protects you and your family it is also protects others around you. 

On August 23, 2021, The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officially approved the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine. The Moderna and Johnson & Johnson Janssen vaccines are still approved through emergency use authorization. The emergency use authorization is still in effect for the Pfizer vaccine to be used for children age 12-15.
