Cancellations


Due to concerns about COVID-19, influenza and other illnesses, HSHS St. Francis Hospital has decided to postpone or cancel non-essential events/classes (except prenatal classes) at the hospital through the end of April. 

Events or meetings directly related to patient care will not be cancelled.  All essential hospital functions will continue as usual.

Public health officials recommend using social distancing early to help slow the spread of disease. Social distancing refers to maintaining enough distance between yourself and another person to reduce the risk of breathing in droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

The cancellation list below will be updated as additional information becomes available.
