Women’s Health, Adult, and Family Services

The Every Baby Matters Mission at CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospital – New Braunfels provides mother and baby with an in-home visit by a registered nurse following the days of delivery. The nurse provides parenting education and a medical assessment for mother and baby. The EBMM strives to give parents the tools they need to allow babies to thrive in strong, healthy families.

The largest gift from the Friends Foundation to date benefited the purchase and installation of the Cardiac Cath lab at CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospital – Westover Hills. The lab is equipped with two state-of-the-art rooms, allowing heart and vessel imaging, special procedures, studies, and treatments. We support healthy hearts and providing the best cardiac care to our patients.

The Family Health Center at CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospital – Westover Hills provides comprehensive family health services for all ages to more than 10,000 patients each year (of which 55 percent are uninsured or underinsured). Through philanthropic support, funding is provided for the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment, as well as clinical operational support.

The FHC is also the classroom for the Family Medicine Residency Program, which accepts nine residents, who are competitively chosen out of approximately 1,000 applicants each year.

Senior Services

Support from our donors provides resources that directly benefit senior-centered care and a senior-friendly environment for the more than 12,000 patients, ages 65 and older, cared for each year in the Emergency Department at CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospital – Medical Center.

The Hospital is outfitted with special floors, lighting, furniture, and a nursing staff specially trained to care for senior patients. Your donations allow these important developments to come to fruition.

Through the Hazel and Fred Kingman Endowment, the Acute Care for the Elderly (ACE) Unit at CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospital – Medical Center underwent much-needed renovations to become the Orthopedics and Neurosciences Center and the Hazel and Fred Kingman Education and Conference Center.

CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospital – Medical Center specializes in care for seniors throughout all units and specialties, now called ACE Without Walls.
