4th Annual ThanksGIVING Drive

4th Annual ThanksGIVING Drive

It’s our favorite time of the year, the time of ThanksGIVING!  Thanksgiving is a special holiday with a long-standing tradition and values which helped lay the foundation that this great nation was founded on. Having a family gathering and giving thanks is a big part of that.  Join us for our 4th Annual ThanksGIVING Drive to help ensure that everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!


Just a couple of months ago, our communities were faced with the force of nature called Hurricane Harvey.  Many families are still struggling to recover from the major damage and loss that this natural disaster brought about.  Some lost a little, others lost all, but none are alone.  We at Altus Emergency Center Lumberton, who was the only 24/7 ER Haven in Hardin County Open & Operational during Harvey, encourage everyone to join Altus Gives and Lumberton Civic Women’s League/Caring Hearts in giving back. This year, we are happy to continue our tradition, this being our 4th Annual ThanksGIVING Drive.

Lumberton ER Earns Perfect Report

Lumberton ER Earns Perfect Report Following State Inspection

LUMBERTON, TX (MARCH 2016) — No deficiencies were found recently during a surprise inspection of Altus Emergency Center Lumberton by the Department of State Health Services.
A state health surveyor arrived at the facility March 16 to begin a two-day inspection, which resulted in a perfect report. Surveyors check to ensure facilities are compliant with state regulations, and that all policies and procedures are followed.

“We have an exemplary team that does superior work providing its community with high-quality healthcare on a daily basis,”

said Jason Bedair, Vice President of Clinical Services.

“The surveyor was very impressed with our facility and its staff.”

Altus Lumberton ER Team Joins Volunteers Assisting Texas Flood Victims – Giving Back to the Community!

DEWEYVILLE, TX (March 30, 2016) — A team from Altus Emergency Center Lumberton spent the day with Samaritan’s Purse as they assisted flood victims in Deweyville.

Pictured (left to right, clockwise): Ashley Stevens, LVN; Tracie Lutz, RN; Katie Fortenberry, Credentialing Assistant; Monique Batson, eMarketing Communications Specialist; Richelle Blackburn, Regional Director of Administrative Services; Bradley Jackson, Administrative Assistant; Kevin Garner, ER Administrator; Obinna Ononobi, Project Director; Mary Royal,
Billing; Melissa Thompson, RN; and Lauren Schopper, Registrar.
The twelve staff members worked to gut the home of Larry and Joyce, who had lived in their house for 51 years before it took in more than three feet of water earlier this month. They are just one of more than 200 homes that will need the organization’s assistance in the coming days. While they have had several people and groups volunteer to work with them, they are in need of many more.  An estimated 2,000 homes were damaged or destroyed in Orange and Newton counties earlier this month by historic flooding that resulted in a federal disaster
declaration for three counties. Areas like Deweyville sustained roof-high water to schools and homes in the worst Sabine River flood since the late 1880s.
Should you want to volunteer as an individual, family, or group (participants must be at least 14 years old), please call (409) 238-4926.

Making Children Feel Right at Home.

“Our patient-centered operation includes receiving concierge service in an emergency room setting. This includes a plan of care that involves both the patient and families, even after being discharged. The plan also extends to children, who are just as important to us as adults. We have special accommodations for children and an added tier of comfort, including pediatric devoted exam rooms. Apart from our acclaimed emergency medical care specialties, we believe that any visit to our medical facility will be the most comfortable possible for all children,” says Ononobi.

During our Ribbon Cutting ceremony, our special guest is, Eddie Rescue, Altus’ life-size teddy bear mascot.  We invite all to come and take photos with Eddie.  Children are invited to take home “Mini Eddie Rescues” as a reminder that,

“a visit to the doctor can send you back home with a smile,”

says Director of Operations and Development, Obinna Ononobi. The Altus patient experience is unique and centers around better health and comfort for all patients.
