Since 2004, hospital admissions have risen 21 percent, surgical procedures have grown 94 percent and emergency room visits have increased 28 percent.

As part of St. Francis Hospital’s efforts to offer unsurpassed care, the organization broke ground in 2011 on two new towers. The first, a four-story building, will house a dedicated cardiovascular-surgical unit equipped with the latest state-of-the-art technology. The second tower will house Cardiac and Women’s Centers of Excellence, bringing these services under one roof for patients’ convenience and putting physicians closer to their hospitalized patients. St. Francis will also add 20 new patient rooms to their Emergency Department as part of their efforts to reduce wait times and expedite patient care. The completion date for these projects is slated for fall 2013.
