Our Commitment to the Community

Equally important to the acute healthcare services Saint Francis provides, there are the many charity programs that we sponsor. Our Saint Clare Van provides medical care to people in the community who do not have health insurance. The Tiny Steps program assists women in need who may be expecting or planning a family, and children in the first year of life. The Center of Hope reaches out to persons who may have health needs in the bilingual community. Our Cancer Outreach and Education series promotes cancer education and screenings. The Financial Assistance program helps people to receive care regardless of their ability to pay.

Through our Community Health Outreach program, Saint Francis also participates in a variety of community health fairs and activities, and we are launching a program to support parish and school nurses in their ministries.

Saint Francis continues to study the needs of the community and is completing a community health needs assessment in FY2017. This will lead to a community health improvement plan which will be used to guide future opportunities for service. We appreciate the many partnerships with community leaders and other healthcare providers which enable us to serve the people of Wilmington well, and look forward to the ways we may be called to serve in the future.
