We offer comprehensive medical, surgical and psychiatric care as well as complete emergency, ambulatory and diagnostic services. Our largest inpatient services are internal medicine, cardiology, psychiatry, pulmonary, orthopedics, gastroenterology and general/GI surgery.

BWFH now provides its patients with the some of the most advanced medication safety technology by utilizing a combination of computerized order entry, administration records, infusion pumps and automated drug dispensing machines. In fact, BWFH now uses a Bedside Medication Verification system, known as bar coding that automatically checks a patient's medical record to ensure that they're receiving the correct medicine and the correct dosage at the proper time.

BWFH also has full accreditation from The Joint Commission.

The Franciscan Health Foundation exists to support the programs and services of Franciscan Alliance, Inc. We are dedicated to addressing the ever-growing healthcare needs of our communities and supporting patient needs at our not-for-profit hospitals, outpatient facilities and community-based programs throughout Indiana and South Suburban Chicago.

Our foundress, Blessed Maria Theresia Bonzel, was drawn to the ideals of St. Francis of Assisi, who left a legacy of faith characterized by selfless giving and the spirit of love; he loved every person without measure or discrimination. Blessed Mother Maria Theresia extended the ideals of St. Francis to America when she sent six Sisters from Olpe, Germany to Lafayette, Indiana in 1875 to begin a ministry of healthcare and education for the poor and neglected.

St. Francis continues to be a source of inspiration as we “Continue Christ’s Ministry in our Franciscan tradition” by loving and caring for the unloved, the poor, the uncared for, the uninsured. We welcome all and provide the same high quality, compassionate care to everyone.

Walking in the footsteps of St. Francis, we remember his teachings: “For it is in giving that we receive.” Your gifts make a difference every day in the communities where Franciscan Alliance is privileged to serve.
