CHI Health St. Francis has been Grand Island’s hospital since 1887. Today, the hospital is a regional referral center, with more than 100 physicians and more than 1,100 employees working together to build a healthier community — our goal is to provide patients with high-quality medical care close to home, where they can be supported by their family, friends, and community.
The mission of CHI Health St. Francis is to nurture the healing ministry of the Church, supported by education and research. Fidelity to the Gospel urges us to emphasize human dignity and social justice as we create healthier communities.
Our vision is to live up to our name as one CHI:
Catholic: Living our mission and core values.
Health: Improving the health of the people and communities we serve.
Initiatives: Pioneering models and systems of care to enhance care delivery.
