About Saint Francis

Since 1887, the employees and physicians of Saint Francis have carried out our mission of building a healthier community by providing increasingly sophisticated healthcare to all central Nebraskans. Our goal is to provide the medical care our patients need close to home, where they can be supported by family, friends and community.

We have grown from a community hospital to a regional referral center with some 100 physicians and more than 1,100 employees.
