As a teaching hospital, Franklin Square carries out the important function of training physicians in the specialties of Internal Medicine, OB-GYN, Surgery and Family Medicine and also provides training for nurses and allied health professions. The quality, commitment and skill of our RNs, earned the hospital Magnet Designation, the highest achievement in nursing excellence.
Medical services are provided via six service lines: Medicine, Surgery, Women's and Children's Care, Oncology (Cancer), Behavioral Health and Community Health and Wellness. Unique to Franklin Square is a broad range of healthcare specialties, advanced technologies and treatments that are not traditionally found at community hospitals. As a not-for-profit hospital, Franklin Square does not have owners or stakeholders. All its earnings are redirected into improving patient care and for the betterment of the community. In the fiscal year ending June 30 2009, $28.1 million was redirected toward community benefits.
Due to unprecedented growth in the community, increased volumes and aging facilities, Franklin Square is in the midst of the largest, most exciting building project it has undergone since moving to its current location 40 years ago; the construction of a new Patient Care Tower, with all private rooms, which is scheduled to open in November 2010.
