Franciscan Healthcare Foundation

Throughout its history, Mayo Clinic Health System - Franciscan Healthcare has benefited from a tremendous philanthropic relationship with the community.

This essential partnership began more than 125 years ago as the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration prepared to open the region’s first hospital in La Crosse, WI – a modest, 35-bed facility called St. Francis.

Your support today is just as crucial to maintaining compassionate, high quality healthcare. Your contributions benefit such diverse areas as:

  • medical research
  • advanced technology
  • patient & staff education
  • patient care, including the cancer center, cardiac care, diabetes and hospice

And importantly…programs that extend medical care to those in financial need.

We ask your partnership as we work to further the Sisters’ healing mission in the 21st century. Today, just as in 1883 and every year since, your support makes all the difference. Thank you.
