June is . Hernias of the abdominal wall, ventral hernia and of the groin Two of the most commonly repaired hernias are ventral hernias and inguinal hernias. Robotic-assisted surgery using the da Vinci 5 System allows surgeons such as Dr Michael Corneille to use minimally invasive techniques to achieve greater precision, smaller incisions, and a quicker recovery for his patients.

Today, we join the communities we serve to celebrate and honor Juneteenth- a historic moment of freedom and resilience. As a health system, we recognize the significance of Juneteenth in the journey toward equality and justice. Throughout the communities we serve and operate in we offered health screenings and volunteers at community events. Let us all reflect on our history and when such reflection is painful, may we turn to God and His abundant grace to trust Him for our future.

In 2020, Glenda Smith was diagnosed with breast cancer. With no symptoms or family history, it came as a complete shock, and times became tougher in an already tough climate. But with support from CHRISTUS St. Frances Cabrini Cancer Center, she underwent a lumpectomy procedure to remove the cancerous tumor and 19 radiation treatments.

Her doctor, Dr. Lawrence Menache, radiation oncologist, stayed by her side, offering comfort and support until she received the care she needed. Now in remission, Glenda is back in her community, inspired by the care she received. Today, she encourages others to hold steadfast to faith. Glenda shares that,"God has a different plan than we have, but he never abandons you."

1 out of 8 women will receive a breast cancer diagnosis in her lifetime. Learn more and assess your risk at https://christus.io/BCHRA.

The NICUs and Mother-Baby Units at CHRISTUS St. Michael and CHRISTUS Santa Ros got EXTRA snuggly as they participated in a Kangaroo-a-thon! Kangaroo care is a special method of holding a baby skin-to-skin, similar to how kangaroos hold their young in a pouch!
For moms, it promotes bonding, boosts breast milk production, reduces anxiety, and enhances their ability to understand their baby's cues. Dads also experience bonding benefits, stress relief, and a sense of protectiveness.

These ministries clocked almost 20,000 minutes of this precious bonding time! Thank you to our associates who championed these efforts!

At CHRISTUS Good Shepherd- Marshall we blessed and unveiled a new remote food locker in partnership with Mission Marshall, a recipient of the CHRISTUS Community Impact Fund. The food locker is the latest tool in the battle against food insecurity and will allow those in need to place an online order and retrieve their items in private after receiving a personalized pickup code and time. Because of its convenient location outside of the hospital, it will be especially useful for after-hours and weekend orders.

Susie Threlkeld and her husband of 43 years, Bill, suspected something was wrong when she started experiencing pain in her breast. They were right. An ultrasound revealed a lump, and she was diagnosed with breast cancer not long after. A week later, she met with Dr. Whitney Huddleston, general surgeon at CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic. Dr. Hiddleston laid out her options, and since Susie opted for a mastectomy and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Huddleston collaborated with Dr. Lloyd Jones, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon at CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic. Together, Dr. Huddleston was able to remove Susie's cancer cells, while Dr. Jones performed her breast reconstruction, all in a single surgery, and Susie was cleared to go home the next day. Today, both she and her husband are grateful for the surgeons at CHRISTUS, and she has gotten back to her life, now a breast cancer survivor and fighter.

As we celebrated National Cancer Survivors Day earlier this week we celebrate with our patients like Susie

Quick reflexes and CPR training can make a world of difference in critical situations. During National CPR and AED Awareness Week, we recognize the importance of these life-saving measures. Rob Kenney, a physical therapist and his team at CHRISTUS Shreveport Bossier experienced this firsthand when a patient suffered a sudden cardiac arrest during a routine session at their outpatient clinic.

Rob and another therapist performed CPR, reviving their patient within a minute. EMS arrived minutes later to transport the patient to the hospital.
Incidents like these remind us of the importance of CPR training, having an AED available, and having a reliable team.

We have much to celebrate this graduation season! Whether it's our Project SEARCH students at CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances and CHRISTUS Santa Rosa - Alamo Heights finishing their school year or our patients reaching their individual milestones, the joy is everywhere. Although Emma could not attend her ceremony due to her treatment, her nurses, family, and the child life department made her feel special by ensuring she got to don her cap and gown to mark the momentous occasion. Meanwhile, Havely celebrated her graduation with a walk across the stage (in heels!) just a month and a half after life-changing hip surgery with CHRISTUS Childrens orthopedic surgeon Dr. Tyler Stavinoha.

Congrats to all the 2024 graduates!

CHRISTUS Health has acquired 15 new cutting-edge robotic surgical systems for hospitals across our system. The Intuitive da Vinci 5 surgical system is used for minimally invasive procedures and is known for its precision and immersive vision. The device and minimally invasive approach allow patients to undergo their necessary procedures with less recovery time and may also experience less pain and scarring and less risk of infection.

These new robotic systems, used for urology, gynecology, thoracic and general surgeries, will enhance the consistency and effectiveness of our compassionate care.

We had a great time celebrating Asian American and Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander Heritage Month at our Advancement Through Innovation Cultural Fair at the Ministry System Office. The fair included a fireside chat with guest speaker Caren Lock, a visit from Star Go West, Ms. Philippines Independence 2023-2024, and Emma Ramos, representing the Ms. International Texas and dance performances from Grace Hula Dance Co, Doris Huang & the Forever Dancers, the Southlake Dance Moms and Krithika Subramanian Mukund. Additionally, there was a museum showcasing the heritage of Japan, China, India, Cambodia, Thailand, Samoa, Hawaii, Micronesia and Guam (Chamorros). We thoroughly enjoyed learning more about and celebrating the accomplishments of AANHPI cultures!

CHRISTUS Children's unveiled a new, fully integrated, minimally invasive surgery suites. The two high-tech, innovative suites are outfitted with SLD Technology’s AirFRAME and Indigo-Clean system, making them the first of their kind in Texas. These suites can accommodate all diagnostic and laparoscopy general surgery procedures and will be the home of our da Vinci Xi surgical robot.

Local philanthropist Harvey E. Najim made the new suites possible and the SWBC Foundation made the most significant donation in its history and graciously donated the funds to acquire the da Vinci Xi surgical system. Our foundation team, hospital president Cris Daskevich, and Dr. Katherine Barsness, chair of the department of surgery, were honored to welcome Najim and Gary Dudley, president and co-founder of SWBC, into the suites to show them the state-of-the-art technology and explain how their generous donations will continue to provide our patients and families with the highest quality of care right here in our community.

Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander Heritage Month holds a special meaning across our health system. For Tara Alaichamy, a physical therapist at CHRISTUS Highland Medical Center, it is the opportunity to reflect on her culture while educating others. "Growing up with a Chinese and Thai heritage in the south, I embraced a fusion in terms of food, religion and outlook on society. I come into work remembering that everyone is equal in the eyes of God: from fellow Associates, to patients and leaders. This is how I can be most authentic in everything I do."
