Why Saint Francis?

Physicians from across the country are choosing to practice at Saint Francis because of the quality of life we enjoy in Cape Girardeau, the stability of the organization and progressive thinking of the leadership team.

Why Saint Francis?

The team approach to healthcare delivery earned Saint Francis five-star rankings in 15 quality outcome categories in the most recent annual report from HealthGrades®, the nation’s leading independent healthcare ratings organization.

Saint Francis Medical Partners

The Medical Partners is the organization’s employed and affiliated physicians group, featuring an administrator who provides leadership for all operational, financial and administrative aspects of the network. Currently, Saint Francis Medical Partners is composed of over 150 physicians and providers representing over 25 specialties.

Medical Partners members are able to concentrate on patient care rather than deal with the distractions of running a business.

Modern Healthcare magazine named Saint Francis Medical Center one of its 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare for the sixth year in a row in 2013—an honor no other employer in Missouri achieved. Saint Francis is one of only three hospitals in the nation to appear on the list every year since 2008.
