East Texas health provider CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic has been named the 2017 recipient of the American Medical Group Association’s Acclaim Award, publicity officials announced.

“Receiving the AMGA’s Acclaim Award is a wonderful recognition of the effort and dedication built upon the foundation set forth by the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word of Houston and the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word of San Antonio many years ago,’’ said Chris Glenney, FACHE, Senior Vice President of Group Operations, CHRISTUS Health and Chief Executive Officer, CHRISTUS Health Northeast Texas.

CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic joins past Acclaim Award recipients such as Premier Medical Associates, Permanente Medical Group, Geisinger Health System and other health care providers.

“We pride ourselves on our commitment to bringing the best patient care and services to Northeast Texas. This has been an integral part of CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Health System’s mission as a faith-based health provider for almost 80 years, and we will continue to realize that vision for Northeast Texas for years to come,” said Steven Keuer, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Health System and President of CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic.
