"This is a day of celebration for our new health system and for the people of east Texas. Today, we bring together two great, [nonprofit] organizations who share the same commitment to providing high quality healthcare and improving the health of the communities we serve," said William Huffman, chair of the board of directors of Good Shepherd Health System. "We are delighted to join Christus Health and excited to carry on our proud tradition of caring for east Texans."

"Our mission for the last 150 years has been to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ, and with the finalization of this agreement, we are continuing to build upon and strengthen our mission for years to come," said Ernie Sadau, president and CEO of Christus Health.  "We're so very fortunate that Good Shepherd Health System has joined Christus Health, and we are looking forward to continuing to provide the residents of east Texas continue with high quality health."
