Our Mission, Vision & Values

At Franciscan Hospital for Children, our mission is to provide compassionate care and education to children with special health care needs, and to help them reach their full potential.

Our vision is to create a pediatric center for children with special needs that serves as a nationally and internationally recognized model, leader, and advocate of care, and offers the best possible outcome for children with special health care needs.

Philosophy of Care

Compassionate Staff: As providers, we strive to be warm, welcoming, consistent, and understanding.

Customized Care: Each child is unique. That’s why his or her care plan should be too.

Holistic Scope: Body, mind, and spirit all contribute to a child’s wellness. We work hard to make sure they are all addressed.

Family Focused: Families know their child best, and we count on them as a trusted partner in care delivery.

Quality Driven: We strive to deliver better, safer, and more effective care every day.

Personal Bests: Expectations and outcomes are unique to each child. We work to make sure that each child reaches his or her own potential.
