What about something like;

"I know your dads not well, but I wish with all my heart thatyour & your dad can recover & live a healthy life. The hospital is the best place to be, so he can get better. I pray for you & your father'

Is she a good friend or not? If she's just a friend, not a particularly close one, I'd just say how sorry you are to hear about her Dad and you hope he gets better and you wish her and her family all the best. If she's your good friend, I'd say the same thing, but then ask her how she WANTS you to deal with her and what to say.

My best friends little brother died suddenly when we were 18 and I was there for her, but she asked me to be normal with her, make jokes and take her out to take her mind off things if you know what I mean. She had everyone at school and in the street saying how sorry they were and I was the only one who made her feel normal she said. Your friend may need this too. You'll only know by asking though, and I'm sure she won't mind. Just say that you don't want to say/do the wrong thing and you just want to support her as best you can. Hope that helps.

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though its breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, youll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
Youll see the sun come shining through for you

Thats really nice that you want to be friendly to this girl and support her. You could try just telling her you hope her dad recovers and gets better soon or something along those lines?
