Go Rebuild My Hospital

by Sister Julie Ann on June 12, 2010

St. Francis spent much time in the tearing down, building up construction business in his first days of following the Lord. Franciscan Care Services, Inc., West Point, NE,  sponsored by Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity, is presently visioning a better future and hoping to meet that future with a hospital expansion and remodeling. Can’t you see today’s Franciscan wearing a hard hat?

Watch the latest in construction news. Footings and geopiers are being formed and work has been done to shore up the basement. Erection work on steel will begin shortly with next phase of the project to begin in late summer. The expected opening date for the new tower, expanded rehab and expanded clinic is 2012.

    Yes, Sr. Julie Ann, that is what the site looks like for the St. Francis Memorial Hospital with lots of water due to the rains. So, as we are composing the men are pumping out the water so as to dry OUT and continue. Thank you for the extensive pictures! We remember all the Sisters and lay people who have come before us in our history and in GRATITUDE pray for the continued construction within & without the hospital as hostory CONTINUES in the making.
