The Franciscan Health System, located in Washington State, is a faith-based organization affiliated with Catholic Health Initiatives, one of the largest non-profit health organizations in the United States. Franciscan includes five full-service hospitals; a large primary-care and specialty-care medical group; in-home and inpatient hospice and palliative care; same-day surgery centers; occupational health and physical therapy clinics; and centers for advanced medicine that are distinguished by expertise and state-of-the-art technology. We are committed to excellence every day as part of our healing ministry. Our hospitals are the exclusive providers of inpatient care for Group Health Cooperative enrollees in the South Puget Sound region. We serve our patients, their families and entire communities through all of life’s stages. The Franciscan Health System is a member of the Washington State Hospital Association and a recipient of the Washington State Quality Award for Performance Excellence. Historically, seeds for the Franciscan Health System were planted in 1891 when the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia founded St. Joseph Hospital in Tacoma (now called St. Joseph Medical Center, the flagship hospital of the Franciscan Health System). The organization has grown with the enduring goal of fulfilling the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of those we serve as emphasized in our Mission and Values.
