As CHRISTUS Spohn Health System celebrates its 110-year anniversary, a variety of recognitions and events are paying homage to the legacies of the Sisters of the Charity of the Incarnate Word and Dr. Arthur E. Spohn.

The Corpus Christi City Council recognized CHRISTUS Spohn and its associates with a proclamation Tuesday read by Mayor Nelda Martinez in Council chambers while the Diocese of Corpus Christi will acknowledge CHRISTUS Spohn’s legacy of extending the healing ministry of Jesus Christ with a special recognition before Sunday Mass at every church in the diocese this weekend.

The first Spohn hospital opened its doors July 26, 1905, on North Beach in Corpus Christi.
