St. Francis Medical Center is dedicated to serving the healthcare needs of the communities of Southeast Los Angeles. Our vision is to be a values-driven integrated health care delivery system in collaboration with those who share our values.
We are committed to providing the very best care, with quality, safety, compassion, and respect, and to promoting the full development of the human person, preservation of health and well-being of the community, and just reimbursement for these services.
We provide patient-centered, economical health services with a focus on nurturing healthy children and families, building self-sufficiency, and achieving excellence in facilities and technology with the ultimate goal of enhancing the health of our community.
We operate a 384-bed acute care hospital and one of the largest and busiest private emergency trauma centers in Los Angeles County — treating more than 84,000 children and adults each year. Last year, more than 5,000 babies were born at SFMC’s Family Life Center, with 875 babies cared for in our state-of-the-art Neonatal Intensive Care Center. We are a Primary Stroke Care Center and STEMI Receiving Center, both of which are approved by the Los Angeles County Emergency Medical Services Agency.
Our Healthy Community Initiatives bring healthcare services to children and families in their schools and neighborhoods. In addition, we operate a Children’s Counseling Center for abused and neglected children, a Health Benefits Resource Center to link individuals and families to health insurance and social service programs, and a broad range of educational and community services programs that improve the health and well-being of children, adults, and seniors throughout our service area.
