Mother Frances Hospital - Tyler

Here For Your Health

In 1937, far-sighted community leaders saw the need for improved healthcare in East Texas and joined with the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth to create Tyler’s first and only hospital. Doors opened a day early on March 18, 1937 to treat hundreds of seriously wounded teachers and children after an explosion rocked New London School about 25 miles southeast of Tyler.

Since then, families in east Texas have found a refuge for healing and hope in the caring hands of trusted Trinity Mother Frances providers.

Serving east Texas for 75 years, Mother Frances Hospital-Tyler is a 404-bed acute care facility located in the heart of Tyler, Texas, offering a complete range of services including trauma care and emergency medical services, routine and specialized medical and surgical care, Tyler’s ONLY neonatal intensive care unit, maternal and child care, advanced neurological, orthopedic, cardiac care and more.

Our physicians and staff treat patients using the latest technology, modern facilities, and best medical practices available. The Ornelas Tower, opened in 2003, is home to the Louis & Peaches Owen Heart Hospital (Phase I), the Surgery Center and 152 private patient rooms, and features some of the most innovative and advanced technology and healing concepts in the world.

Mother Frances Hospital-Tyler was named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® by Thomson Reuters in 2012, a leading provider of information and solutions to improve the cost and quality of healthcare. It was the second consecutive year the hospital received the award and the fourth time in five years.

The Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals® study evaluates performance in 10 areas: mortality; medical complications; patient safety; average patient stay; expenses; profitability; patient satisfaction; adherence to clinical standards of care; post-discharge mortality; and readmission rates for acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure, and pneumonia.

Just as the community we serve continues to expand, we have grown into a nationally renowned health system of excellence. And our commitment to serving the east Texas region with compassion, excellence and efficiency has earned Mother Frances Hospital-Tyler national recognition, including the HealthGrades Distinguished Hospital Award for Patient Safety™ for 2007, 2008 and 2009.

From the beginning we have been here for your health, sharing your life’s challenges, joys, losses, and victories and will continue to serve your needs passionately for another 75 years and beyond.
