A trusted leader in providing faith-based, integrated health care, Franciscan Alliance brings together the latest technology, innovative procedures and the brightest, most compassionate people to serve our patients in Indiana, Illinois and Michigan. Throughout our 13 hospitals and many medical practices, we offer a number of nationally recognized Centers of Health Care Excellence.
For more than 135 years, Franciscan Alliance has stayed true to our founding mission to care for everyone who comes through our doors. We treat our patients with the best possible care by following the guiding ethical values embodied by our founding congregation, the Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration. Always mindful of our Christian stewardship to the Roman Catholic Church, we minister with joy, care and compassion according to the ideals of St. Francis of Assisi and our founder, Mother Maria Theresia Bonzel.

Each day, we commit ourselves to practicing the words of our mission in how we care for our patients: 
  •     As health care providers, we continue the good works and maintain the values and traditions of the thousands of people who have gone before us.
  •     We model our lives and our work after Jesus Christ, a caring teacher and a gentle healer.
  •     In whatever the case may be – whether nursing a patient back to health or caring for them through the dying  process – our system carries on His healing and teaching ministries.
  •     Throughout Franciscan Alliance, our physicians and all employees embrace and carry out our mission in every day’s work.
  •     Each day, throughout the halls of our hospitals, we embrace our Franciscan Tradition by walking in the footsteps of St. Francis, who left behind his worldly possessions to care for all of those in need.


Our physicians and employees follow the values established by our founding congregation, the Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration.
