Franciscan Health provides a full spectrum of behavioral health services that focus on treating the whole individual: mind, body and spirt. Many people dealing with behavioral health issues such as family difficulties, career pressures, anxiety, depression or a loss of self-worth, can get better with the help of Franciscan Health’s dedicated behavioral health team. Your support will go a long ways toward helping them take that first crucial step: finding the help they need to return to a normal life.
A trusted leader in faith-based, integrated healthcare, Franciscan Health brings together the latest technology, innovative procedures and highly skilled and compassionate employees to serve our patients. Your gift to any of our hospitals helps us continue “Christ's Ministry in our Franciscan Tradition" by serving everyone with respect and compassion.
Being hospitalized can be lonely and frightening. The Compassionate Companions program in South Suburban Chicago trains volunteers to spend time with patients who are alone and to relieve caregivers spending hours in the hospital room with a loved one. Your gift to this program underwrites the cost of training volunteers and provides items to comfort our patients.
One of the goals of Franciscan Health is to provide better care and better health at lower costs. Encouraging and stimulating pioneering ideas is one way to do that. Your support of our Innovation Fund gives us an opportunity to pursue innovative healthcare delivery models.
Spiritual Care is at the core of our mission and values. Your gift supports training and professional development for Franciscan Health chaplains. This fund also helps our chaplains respond to patients who lack financial resources for necessities like clothing and transportation.
