Saint Francis Medical Center, Grand Island, Neb., and Saint Joseph HealthCare, Lexington, Ky., are among 14 hospitals across the country featured in a new American Hospital Association (AHA) brochure, Care in Action. Saint Francis was recognized for its Student Wellness Center, which provides general health care and mental health counseling at Grand Island Senior High School. Saint Joseph was recognized for its Mobile Health Services, which bring health care to medically underserved rural counties around Lexington, where many residents are uninsured. The AHA developed the brochure to show how nonprofit hospitals benefit their communities.
