Patient Stories

Since the founding of St. Joseph Medical Center in 1891 by the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia, the enduring goal of the CHI Franciscan Health has been to fulfill the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of the individuals we serve.

We have the expertise to heal the body and compassion to care for the mind and spirit. The Franciscan experience changes lives as told in these Patient Stories.
