CHRISTUS breaks ground on third emergency center in east Texas

April 2024
Jamey Brogan, vice president of mission integration for CHRISTUS Good Shepherd Health System, speaks at a groundbreaking event for an emergency center that CHRISTUS is erecting in Henderson, Texas.



CHRISTUS Health has broken ground on a stand-alone emergency center in Henderson, Texas. This is the third such center that CHRISTUS is building in rural Texas east of Dallas.

The Henderson facility will have 17 inpatient beds, 13 exam rooms, four triage rooms as well as imaging and laboratory services. About 40 people will staff this facility.

In January, CHRISTUS announced plans to build an emergency hospital on a preexisting CHRISTUS medical plaza in Palestine that will have inpatient beds, imaging and laboratory services. About 40 people will work there.

Also in January, CHRISTUS said it plans to develop a campus in Mount Pleasant with a freestanding emergency center and outpatient services. That campus will have medical offices, imaging and testing, a laboratory and a physical and occupational therapy center. The campus, which will be called HealthPark, will employ about 50 associates.

The Henderson and Palestine facilities are to open in summer 2025, and the Mount Pleasant site in late 2025.
