COMMITMENT. EXCELLENCE. Integrity. Respect. Service. Stewardship.
We are a not-for-profit organization providing services to the aging and most vulnerable. Originating in 1963 as the Villa of St. Francis Nursing Home in Morris, MN, St. Francis Health Services became the parent corporation in 1984.
St. Francis Health Services offers first-rate and remarkable facilities served by dedicated and highly trained staff to deliver the highest quality care. The Board of Directors and staff of St. Francis Health Services are deeply committed to meeting the challenge of today’s population by providing choice and creative alternatives in the delivery of healthcare services.
Sponsored by the Catholic Diocese of St. Cloud, St Francis Health Services seeks to be a “community that provides healthcare to those in need of it. This service must be animated by the Gospel of Jesus Christ and guided by the moral tradition of the Church” (Ethical and Religious Directives).
Jesus’ healing mission went further than caring only for physical affliction. He touched people at the deepest level of their existence; he sought their physical, mental, and spiritual healing (Jn 6:35, 11:25-27). He ‘came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly’ (Jn 10:10).
Our healthcare should be marked by a spirit of mutual respect among caregivers that disposes them to deal with those it serves and their families with the compassion of Christ, sensitive to their vulnerability at a time of special need.
