Festival of Trees

As we end a year, we often find ourselves reflecting on the year past, devoting time to learn and grow as we look forward at the New Year ahead. At Bon Secours St. Francis, our pursuit for quality care and excellence is more than just a New Years resolution; it's a way of life.
Excellence in Quality Care

Bon Secours St. Francis' team of doctors, technicians and nurses make it their mission to bring compassion to healthcare every single day. We are therefore delighted to recognize them for their efforts in striving to improve the quality of health in our community and allowing all of us to live our lives to the fullest!

For the second year in a row, Bon Secours St. Francis downtown has won the prestigious Leapfrog Award. This award, presented by The Leapfrog Group, recognizes St. Francis as one of the top hospitals in the United States for achieving high-level of standards, safety, quality and efficiency. This award was presented to 45 of the top hospitals in the nation, and St. Francis downtown is the only hospital in SC to receive this ranking!

Along with the Leapfrog Award, St. Francis has also received the following awards and recognitions this year:

  • Outstanding Patient Experience Award (HealthGrades)
  • NAPBC Accreditation in Breast Health - Accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) is granted only to those centers that are voluntarily committed to providing the best possible care to patients with diseases of the breast.

"Receiving this level of national recognition for our quality and efficiency reflects that our physicians and our staff at every level have set the highest goals for quality of care - and their results are outstanding," says Mark S. Nantz, CEO. "Participating in the programs like Leapfrog means that we are holding ourselves accountable for the measures that make a difference - and our patients are the beneficiaries."
