Community

Since 1924, Saint Francis Healthcare has been a prominent medical provider in the greater Wilmington community, caring for all, regardless of one’s ability to pay. Saint Francis reaches out to those most in need to serve them in their homes, in clinics, and throughout the community.

We understand the importance of a healthy community. Thus, we feel it is our responsibility to provide the program and services required and communicate valuable educational information, in order to best serve medical, social, spiritual and emotional needs.

Each year, Saint Francis Healthcare subsidizes the care of patients through its charity care programs for approximately $11 million dollars. Without this subsidy, patients would not have access to required medical care, preventative treatment or prescriptions requiring co-pays. We feel this is in keeping with our mission to create a transforming, healing presence in our community, regardless of one’s economic situation.
