Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare – St. Francis is a full-service hospital on Milwaukee's south side that has been serving the local community since 1956. With a large medical staff of more than 700 doctors, the hospital is able to provide the scope of services of a large medical center without losing that small community hospital atmosphere that you'll notice the minute you walk in our doors.

From free valet service and room service to the latest in orthopedics, neurological disorders and cardiac care, our patients tell us over and over again that they won't go to any other South Milwaukee hospital for their care. Whether you need a routine physical exam or specialty care, trust your health care to the region's top doctors at St. Francis.
