History:

Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center has come a long way since 1897, when the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Chambéry overcame near-impossible odds to open a two-room hospital in Hartford’s Asylum Hill neighborhood.  The new hospital offered a refuge for immigrants who wanted to know that their faith and traditions would be understood and appreciated if they ever needed inpatient care.

From the beginning, Saint Francis served on the front lines against outbreaks of then-deadly infectious diseases, from typhoid fever to influenza and later polio. At the same time, Saint Francis doctors were quick to recognize that improving health required more than clinical work, and the first research laboratory opened in 1902, the same year that tuberculosis was reaching epic proportions in Hartford and across the United States.

About Us:

Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center is committed to improving and enriching the lives of individuals and families in our region. Compassionate care, superior technology and prevention-oriented education will combine in centers of clinical excellence. Dedication to our founding core values will create a spiritual and healing environment.
