The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity have been involved in health care and education for well over 100 years. In 1985, because of the ever-increasing complexities of health care delivery in the United States, the congregation’s various health care ministries—which include acute and long-term care facilities, senior housing and physician clinics—were incorporated into the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity HealthCare Ministry, Inc. In 2012, the name was changed to Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Sponsored Ministries to reflect the addition of the congregation’s Silver Lake College of the Holy Family, located in Manitowoc, Wis., to the corporation. This non-stock, not-for-profit corporation monitors and manages the congregation’s health care and education ministries which span three states: Wisconsin, Nebraska and Ohio.
The Franciscan Sisters use compassion and creativity to extend their health care and education missions to the people and communities where they serve. With vision and values, the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Sponsored Ministries will insure quality Catholic health care and education for generations to come.
