Franciscan Companies

The Franciscan Companies is a member of the St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center network. Franciscan operates a network of healthcare services that fulfills the ancillary needs of the hospital network. Through a variety of companies and collaborations, Franciscan ensures that patients discharged from St. Joseph’s Hospital—as well as other hospitals in the area—receive the continued care, services, and products they need for improved health and comfort. The impact the Franciscan Companies has on local health care is profound. Inpatient length of stay at area hospitals is decreased, limiting costs for patients, insurance companies, and hospitals; patients are better able to recover and live in the comforts of home surrounded by family and friends; and unnecessary hospital readmissions are less likely to occur, reducing the strain on patients and the system.
