Statement of partnership

St. Francis is a not-for-profit Catholic hospital founded in 1938 out of a spirit of love and concern for the community. St. Francis has been shaped by its roots in the Franciscan and Benedictine traditions.

St. Francis is jointly owned by Allina Health, Park Nicollet and Essentia Health. Its Catholic identity is sponsored by the Benedictine Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery in Duluth. The partners believe by working together, we can efficiently provide the best healing experience and a broad range of services to our communities.
