St. Francis Hospital & Health Services is a full-service, fully-accredited health care organization located in Maryville, Missouri. Our tradition of providing quality, compassionate medical care to the residents of Northwest Missouri began in 1894 – and has continued for more than 100 years. Today, our legacy continues under the umbrella of SSM Health, who is our corporate parent and founded by the Franciscan Sisters of Mary. St. Francis Hospital & Health Services continues its commitment, as first instituted by its Foundress Mother Augustine Giesen, to 'turn no one away.' We pledge to treat all patients without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, handicap, age or ability to pay.
As a rural hospital, we provide emergency treatment, acute care for patients with medical and surgical diagnosis, mental health illnesses, and obstetrical needs. Patients are our number one customer with other stakeholders being patients' families, physicians, employees, community, and payors.
Nodaway County is our primary service area. The population of this area is approximately 20,000. We also draw patients from our secondary service area of the surrounding rural counties of Andrew, Atchison, Holt, Gentry, and Worth, Missouri, and Taylor, Iowa.
Administration and staff continually attempt to understand how St. Francis can maintain the quality and integrity of its programs while looking for areas of improvement and growth within its financial resources.
St. Francis Hospital & Health Services is dedicated to the system-wide mission of SSM Health:
"Through our exceptional health care services,
we reveal the healing presence of God."
