Trinity Mother Frances announces affiliation to help better serve ETX children

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

Children were the first patients cared for when Mother Frances Hospital-Tyler opened one day ahead of its scheduled grand opening in 1937 to treat victims of the New London school explosion. Now, 75 years later, Mother Frances has become a specialty carrier for pediatric care for patients throughout the region.

The hospital's commitment to children expended today when officials with Mother Frances Hospital-Tyler, Children's Medical Center Dallas (Children's) and UT Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW) signed a relationship agreement that is expected to bring pediatric cardiology, urology, telemedicine, other subspecialties and educational services to Tyler and the surrounding areas.

"We have spent the last several months working with Children's Medical Center and UT Southwestern to find ways to connect the expertise of mant of their subspecialty physicians and providers to our patients' continuum of care. This relationship agreement is a natural fit for these three medical entities that share a mutual respect for each other and have worked collaboratively for many years. Coming together to formalize our long-term relationship makes good sense for our patients," said Lindsey Bradley, FACHE, president, Trinity Mother Frances Hospitals and Clinics.
