St. Francis Medical Center

The medical staff of the St. Francis Medical Center consist of more than 200 board-eligible or certified primary care physicians and medical and surgical subspecialists who are organized into departments according to their educational experience.

St. Francis Medical Center is a voluntary, nonprofit, 254-bed general hospital founded by the Sisters of St. Francis of Glen Riddle, Pennsylvania. It is one of approximately 85 institutions of the Catholic Health East System, one of the largest multi-healthcare systems throughout the northeastern United States.

The medical center is administered by a Board of Trustees who guides the administrative staff, led by the CEO, and the medical staff, led by an elected president.

The mission of the medical center is to provide up-to-date effective, affordable health care to the members of the community it serves. In so doing, it provides educational experience for its employees, attending staff and affiliates to enable them to maintain a high level of care. Where appropriate, the employees, medical staff and residents, and other students of the medical center participate in research activities, which ultimately benefit the community in which they serve. The medical center provides services to the members of the community without regard to race, color, creed or ability to pay.

The medical center’s primary educational affiliation is with the Seton Hall University School of Health & Medical Sciences, which supports and enhances the residency programs in internal medicine and surgery.
