  • St. Francis Hospital was founded in a three-story building at this location by the Franciscan Sisters of the Poor in 1863.
  • It grew with several additions to a complex of over 400,000 square feet.
  • It gradually shut down over a ten-year period from 1995 to August 2005, when it closed completely.
  • As of early 2006, a major renovation of the complex into residential buildings is being proposed by Exeter Property Company.
  • The proposal includes demolishing the Main Pavilion, restoring Pavonia Avenue through the block, gutting and reconstructing the existing Franciscan Pavilion, and constructing a new building on the site of the Erie Street Garage.
  • Construction is proposed to commence in late 2006 and will last about three years.
