Health Care ServicesFounders
The seeds for Virginia Mason Franciscan Health were planted in 1891, when the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia established St. Joseph Hospital, now known as St. Joseph Medical Center, in Tacoma. Over the years, our health care ministry has grown with the enduring goal of fulfilling the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of the people we serve.
We follow national guidelines to measure quality and ensure that we’re focused on the most important metrics. By monitoring our results, we can constantly improve our services — bringing the most advanced care from our expert staff to you and your family.
