State Helping Christus With Additional Nurses Amid COVID Spike

    A total of 27 additional nurses have been deployed to Christus St. Michael’s Hospital in Texarkana from the Regional Advisory Council to help fight the recent surge of COVID in the area. 22 RACs are the administrative bodies responsible for trauma system oversight within the bounds of a given Trauma Service Area in Texas.

    Hospital leaders say COVID-19 cases are continuing to rise in the Bowie County area and the extra nurses will help support the staff.

    “The nurses have been able to support our patient care,” said CHRISTUS St. Micheal Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer, Louise Thornell.  Thornell also says the hospital is short-staffed and ready to hire.

    “We have a number of vacancies that our talent acquisition team is working very diligently to fill.”  The CHRISTUS St. Michael Health System is the largest hospital in Bowie County and serves a large portion of northeast Texas.
