Responding to COVID-19


Donation button for SFMH

We want to assure the community that Saint Francis Memorial Hospital is closely monitoring all developments with COVID-19 and we are prepared to identify, isolate, and treat any potential patient who seeks care at our facility. We are in contact with local and state health officials as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and our staff is following the latest guidance from these public health agencies. Saint Francis Memorial Hospital has the supplies and equipment needed to effectively manage the care of any suspected or confirmed COVID-19 patients and we are continuously assessing the volume of supplies at our hospital. The safety of our patients, employees, and physicians remains our highest priority.

Here are some important steps we’ve taken to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community:
