Franklin Foundation Hospital


For more than half a century, Franklin Foundation Hospital has served the health care needs of West St. Mary Parish. Through the years, we have continued to grow and expand our services to meet today's health care challenges.

Construction began on December 2, 2005 on a new 22 - bed Critical Access Hospital. This 65,000 square-foot building is located on the corner of Northwest Boulevard and Chatsworth Road in Franklin. This new state of the art facility and Franklin Foundation Hospital Employees and Physicians are serving the community with the technology and care St. Mary Parish residents have come to expect.


In 1953, a tradition of health care excellence was born in St. Mary Parish with the establishment of Franklin Foundation Hospital (FFH). In its many years of service, FFH has obtained its goal - to provide a broad spectrum of quality medical services right here in St. Mary Parish.
