ST. FRANCES CABRINI – Patron of Hospital Administrators
Frances Cabrini was the first United States citizen to be canonized. She was born in Italy and moved to New York to care for the poor children in hospitals, especially immigrants from Italy, which was why she founded the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart. Frances also opened many schools, orphanages, and hospitals, 67 in total, throughout the U.S., South America, and Europe.
