Company Overview

The University of Kansas Health System St. Francis Campus is proud to be a part of a long legacy of high-quality, compassionate care. The St. Francis hospital began serving its community in 1909 as the mission of a group of Catholic nuns who rose up to meet a need. Today, the hospital has 378 licensed beds, a history of technological advancements, and a generous and supportive community.

In 2017, through a partnership between Ardent Health Services and The University of Kansas Health System, St. Francis embarked on a new era. Ardent is renowned for its outstanding record of community investment, leading edge technology, and health care achievements to the hospital’s management. The University of Kansas Health System is known for its medical and surgical advancements, quality of care, research, and expansive provider network. Both organizations are dedicated to building healthier communities through world-class health care.

With our new name we began a new chapter. One that celebrates and preserves this institution’s rich legacy while evolving to meet the challenges of today. With a shared commitment to quality and unwavering dedication to our patients, we endeavor to strengthen and grow the system for future generations.
