We take great pride in serving the Tyler, Texas community.
Our facility is licensed under Medicare as long-term acute care hospitals, providing care for critically ill and medically complex patients who require a longer acute care stay than a traditional hospital. There are several criteria patients must meet for admission eligibility.
We offer financial assistance to patients who have an economic need and meet the qualifications of our financial assistance policy.
We understand that pricing and billing for healthcare services can be confusing, so we provide our standard price lists to help families better anticipate and understand their financial responsibilities.
Frequently Asked Questions
We are licensed as a Long Term Acute Care Hospital and Christus Trinity Mother Frances is a Short Term Acute Care Hospital. We both provide acute care services, however our long term designation allows us to treat patients requiring acute care for an average length of stay of 25 days.
No. We are a Long Term Acute Care Hospital that specializes in medical management of the complex, critically ill patient. We do offer rehab services as needed and as tolerated for our patients, but are not licensed as an Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility (IRF) that provides more focused and extensive rehab services.
