Now a 376-bed, two-campus regional health system, St. Francis has earned a national reputation for outstanding quality of care. To further expand care, in January 2016 St. Francis Hospital became part of LifePoint Health, a leading healthcare company dedicated to Making Communities Healthier®. LifePoint paid off all of St. Francis' financial obligations, including its loan from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
As part of LifePoint, St. Francis continues its existing charity care policies, and a local Board of Trustees ensures the community's voice in the governance of the hospital. The hospital's staff continues building upon the legacy of excellent healthcare St. Francis has established as well as exploring new ways to improve the health and wellbeing of the communities served. In addition, St. Francis is now a local taxpayer, providing a new source of tax revenues that benefits the community and helps support local projects, local schools and infrastructure in the Chattahoochee Valley. And, as it has since its founding, St. Francis continues to recognize the importance of "holy" when it comes to healing, placing priority on meeting the spiritual needs of patients, their families, and their friends through the Chaplain Services ministry and weekly services held in the hospital chapel.
Now, more than 65 years since its founding, St. Francis remains what the Columbus Ledger described that day as "A dream of mercy shared by people of all faiths."
