Francis Milligan, M.D.
Francis “F.J.” Milligan is a family practitioner in the rural town of Bow, N.H. After graduating from Thomas Aquinas College and Loyola University’s Stritch School of Medicine, Dr. Milligan served as a medical doctor in the U.S. Army until 1996, where he achieved high distinction serving in global hot spots around the world (including being assigned to Somalia during the famine crisis in 1993 and serving as the personal physician of Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.) Yet in spite of these difficult assignments, Dr. Milligan managed to devote his free time to setting up health clinics for the poor and teaching Natural Family Planning, seeing his deployments as God-given opportunities to put his faith into practice in these remote and troubled regions. Since moving to New Hampshire upon his discharge in 1996, Dr. Milligan has gained a sterling reputation as a family practitioner faithful to the tenets of his Catholic faith. In 2011, the Diocese of Manchester presented Dr. Milligan with the St. Martin de Porres Award for Outstanding Medical Treatment, and he was named as a Senior Fellow at the Concord Hospital for his ongoing contributions to the medical community. Dr. Milligan and his wife, Germaine, have sent ten of their fourteen children to Wyoming Catholic College.
