St. Francis Hospital

The Saint Francis Hospital has supplied compassionate, faith-based healthcare in the Kanawha Valley for almost a century now. Conveniently located in downtown Charleston, they offer a strong reputation for compassionate, high quality healthcare, providing the human touch in each situation. Saint Francis was established in 1913 in the Old Laidley Home at 333 Laidley Street purchased by Bishop Patrick J. Donahue, the bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Wheeling and converted to a 25 bed hospital. It was initially run by the Sisters of Saint Francis of Perpetual Adoration from Williamsville, New York. From there the hospital continued to provide the upmost care for every patient throughout the decades, but in 2007 it took a bit of a shift.

On January 1 of 2007 the Thomas Health System, Inc. purchased Saint Francis Hospital. The health system was formed to forge a partnership based on the strength of two established regional hospitals—Thomas Memorial and Saint Francis. Bringing the two local hospitals under the same roof of the Thomas Health System allows them to bring innovative and cost-effective health care to the Kanawha Valley.
