CHRISTUS Health Announces Expansion to Mount Pleasant with New HealthPark Campus

(MOUNT PLEASANT, Texas) – CHRISTUS Health announced today an expansion to Mount Pleasant with the planned development of a new CHRISTUS HealthPark campus that includes a freestanding emergency department and CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic location.

“We are passionate about increasing access to health care for patients across East Texas,” said Chris Glenney, senior vice president for group operations, CHRISTUS Northeast Texas. “Mount Pleasant is an area we really want to grow in, and we know there is a need for patients to access our health system and the exceptional health care we provide. We are honored to meet that need and continue our mission to expand the healing ministry of Jesus Christ.” 

In recent years, CHRISTUS Health has expanded patient access in the Northeast Texas communities of Athens, Atlanta, Canton, Gladewater, Henderson, Kilgore, Lindale, Longview, Marshall, Palestine, Sulphur Springs, Texarkana, Tyler, and Winnsboro.

The new Mount Pleasant project includes the purchase of land at the intersection of Tankersley Road and Interstate 30, near Toyota of Mount Pleasant and Lowe’s.

The new CHRISTUS HealthPark campus will include a single-story building of more than 30,000 square feet, a freestanding emergency department, 12 provider medical offices, diagnostic imaging and testing, a lab and a physical and occupational therapy center. The campus will also have land for future expansion projects.

CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic has been serving patients in the Mount Pleasant area in interventional cardiology with Dr. Kyle Smith, and the team of Drs. Stan Weiner and John Sims in electrophysiology.

 

As part of the HealthPark project, CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic will open their first primary care clinic in the area, led by Dr. Jay Cannon.

 

“We are incredibly excited to be part of the Mount Pleasant community,” said Dr. Brent Wadle, vice president of physician operations at CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic. “The Trinity Clinic provides access to over 600 physicians and nearly 360 nurse practitioners and physician assistants across Northeast Texas. This type of access will allow the residents of Mount Pleasant and the surrounding communities the opportunity to get the care they need in a timely manner without having to leave the region to do so.”

Glenney said that the project will add more than 50 full-time CHRISTUS Associates who will staff the campus. Those positions include registered nurses, radiology and lab technicians, physical therapists, and medical assistants.

The timeline for project is to start construction in about 120 days with a completion date toward the end of 2025, Glenney said.

    If you have a more serious situation you would have to go to Texarkana hospital, right?
