A Gift from the Heart

Louis and Peaches Owen

The prevalence of cardiovascular disease throughout the U.S., but especially here in East Texas, spoke to the hearts of two caring residents of Tyler— Louis & Peaches Owen. Their generous gift to CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Health System in 2010 launched the region’s first and only dedicated heart hospital. Their dream is now becoming a reality. Phase One opened in December 2010 in the Ornelas Tower and provides extraordinary cardiovascular care through innovative programs and technologies

Our vision: World class heart care in Tyler

Construction of Phase Two, a freestanding six-story dedicated heart center, began in Spring 2011 and will be completed by Fall 2012. Among the pioneering concepts incorporated in the design are:

  • Three floors with a total of more than 72 ICU-capable patient beds dedicated exclusively to cardiac patients and designed to provide all levels of care, from admission through discharge
  • 16 cardiac observation beds for rapid assessment and treatment
  • Three new dedicated cardiac and thoracic OR suites
  • On-site Cardiac Rehabilitation Center
  • Inpatient and Outpatient Cardiac Diagnostics
  • Conference Center for community events and heart screenings
  • Separate entry and driveway accessible from East Dawson Street with valet parking and patient assistance available
  • Spacious multi-level lobby with amenities including gift shop and food kiosk
  • Chapel to meet spiritual needs of patients, families and caregivers
  • Patient and Family Education Center and Resource Center
  • One-stop registration using a new electronic medical record
  • Room Service dining
