Our Brand Story

For generations, Roper St. Francis has been trusted with the health of our community. We understand the importance of your health and that of those you love - it's at the center of everything we do. It's why every moment matters. Every second saved in the ER is crucial, why every bedside minute gets our full attention, why every moment spent learning about wellness and prevention is time well-spent. We believe that smiles can change lives.

We believe in the power of caring. We believe it is the muscle behind medicine and the reason for hope. We believe in the power of community, of reaching out, of extending care and generosity to those who need it most. We believe that every moment matters.

Brand Story Video

Our brand story is much more than words on a page. And frankly, is so much more than a “brand.” Our story is lived out every day and every moment at Roper St. Francis. Our story is the essence of who we are and why we are passionate about caring for you. So we offer these videos to reveal a little more about what lies at the heart and soul of Roper St. Francis, what our brand is all about.

What is a brand?

“Brand” is simply the fancy marketing term for an organization’s or company’s personality – its DNA, what makes them unique. The Roper St. Francis brand has been integral to the Lowcountry for more than 150 years. It is a part of our landscape and totally interwoven in our community. This almost makes it harder to think of our healthcare system’s “brand” because we are more like a neighbor than an organization. But we believe that delivering the best care possible, every moment, is the essence of who we are and what we do. Why? Because to us, as it is to you, every moment is precious, every opportunity to care, to help and to heal matters.


Our  Logo

Our icon is the circle of life. The symbol is lively and hopeful, full of movement and energy.  It is an infinite shape, constantly renewing itself and embracing that which is around it. It is the evolution of our two DNA strands, now joined together to represent the entire continuum of care we offer today for our community.

Our font is bold and fresh and strong. It is easier for the eye to read and immediately recognizable in all mediums.


The red in the circle of life represents Roper St. Francis, our people and the care we provide. Red is a strong and sturdy color, representing an organization that has a deep and strong foundation, a pioneering spirit and is confident and passionate about its vision.
