CHRISTUS St. Michael is writing another chapter in its more than 105-year history in Texarkana with the construction of the multi- million CHRISTUS St. Michael Hospital – West, set to break ground early this year. Set to open next year, the new, fully-licensed hospital will be conveniently located at Gibson Lane and Arista Blvd. in Texarkana.
Jason Adams is the president of the CHRISTUS ST. Michael Health Care System: "Generations of people have put their trust in CHRISTUS St. Michael to take care of this community, and that trust is sacred to every person across our ministry,” As the health care needs of this region grow, we are expanding our services and capacity to ensure area residents have access to the high-quality, faith-based care they have come to expect and deserve.”
Set to open in 2023, the new, fully-licensed hospital will be conveniently located at Gibson Lane and Arista Blvd. in Texarkana, providing easy access for patients, Associates, Medical Staff and visitors. Services at the new location will include Emergency Services, inpatient beds, imaging and other clinical services, therapy services, and expanded medical office space for numerous specialists.
CHRISTUS St. Michael Health System unwrapped an early Christmas present for our region 25 years ago, accepting the first patient at the current home along I-30, adding to a legacy of more than a century of service and dedication to the people we serve. The relocation of the hospital in 1994 represented a $140-million investment, and now Phase 1 for CHRISTUS St. Michael Hospital – West is a further investment in that legacy.
