St. Francis Health Center


High-quality health care services and community support have been the tradition at St. Francis Health Center since 1909. Our primary responsibility is to the patients we serve. Our physicians, nurses, clinicians and all associates are committed to providing the highest level of health care while delivering exceptional customer service. While health care and technology will change, our commitment to patient safety, the highest quality of care and exemplary customer service will continue as we begin our second century of service to "reveal God's healing love by improving the health of the individuals and communities we serve, especially those who are poor or vulnerable."

St. Francis Health Center received the HealthGrades Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence Award three consecutive years, 2009- 2011, putting us in the top 5 percent of the nation's hospitals.
