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.
Being a part of a larger organization provides us with opportunities to share resources, capitalize on the latest research and innovation, and provide the best care possible for our patients.
