Thanks to the support of friends and neighbors like you, Franciscan Health Olympia Fields & Chicago Heights has been able to fulfill its mission to deliver quality health care to the residents of the south suburbs for over 100 years.

We take great pride in the tradition of care established in 1911. However, we are constantly searching for better ways of providing care for those who need us. By continually reinvesting in, and upgrading our facilities, we offer some of the latest diagnostic, surgical, and treatment services available. We will continue to build on our strengths, as we strive to provide outstanding care for our patients, for our community, for you and your family.

This approach has enabled Franciscan to earn Press Ganey’s 2010 Top-Improver Award, and the 2011 American Health Association Gold Performance Achievement Award for the treatment of heart attack patients. Franciscan has also earned HealthGrades 5-Star ratings for the treatment of stroke for 10 consecutive years; treatment of heart failure for seven consecutive years; received the HealthGrades Women’s Health Excellence Award for two straight years.

While much has been accomplished, there is still much more to do. We thank the community-minded individuals who have embraced our vision of comprehensive, quality health care, and we continue to ask for your help. In today’s tough operating climate for health care providers, philanthropic giving is essential to our ability to grow and improve.

Your gift to the Franciscan Health Foundation - South Suburban Chicago will enrich the lives of your neighbors, and help to ensure that we continue to deliver first quality healthcare right here at home for generations to come.
