Located in the Southeast Missouri city of Cape Girardeau, Saint Francis Healthcare System serves as a regional healthcare destination for 650,000 people in a five-state area.Saint Francis’ wide range of tertiary-level services matches the breadth of our service area, enabling patients to receive high-quality care while remaining close to home.

Collaboration With Physicians

Saint Francis ranks as one of the highest performing organizations in the country in terms of collaborative relationships with its physician partners. Physician involvement is an integral part of our culture, and the most recent Physician Partner Survey conducted by Press Ganey showed a 99th percentile willingness by physicians to recommend Saint Francis for care and practice.

Saint Francis’ strong financial standing, built through years of strategic thinking, resulted in affirmations from bond credit rating agencies Fitch (AA-) and Standard & Poor’s (A+). Despite downgrading the healthcare industry as a whole, the agencies maintained Saint Francis’ ratings in large part because of our preparedness for the future.
