New St. Luke's Hospital Outpatient Services Building Named in Honor of Desloge Family

The building has been named the Mr. and Mrs. Theodore P. Desloge, Jr. Outpatient Center, Building B.
Chesterfield, Mo. , July 10, 2017
The new outpatient services building on the west campus of St. Luke’s Hospital has been named the Mr. and Mrs. Theodore P. Desloge, Jr. Outpatient Center, Building B in appreciation and recognition of the couple’s lead gift to the hospital’s Advancing Excellence with Exceptional Care Campaign.*
 
Construction of the $40 million five-story, 106,000-square-foot building was completed in December 2016. The building adjoins the Mr. and Mrs. Theodore P. Desloge, Jr. Outpatient Center, Building A which St. Luke’s opened in 2008.
 
“Linda and I are pleased to provide our support in appreciation for the high quality, compassionate care St. Luke’s Hospital has provided to our family and many other families throughout our community for generations," said Theodore P. Desloge, Jr., donor. 
 
“We are sincerely grateful for Mr. and Mrs. Desloge’s continued generous support of our healthcare ministry," said Christine M. Candio, RN, FACHE, St. Luke’s Hospital president and chief executive officer. “This expansion strengthens St. Luke’s network of care in the region, facilitates greater access and convenience for our patients and advances our mission to improve the health of the communities we serve."
 
The Mr. and Mrs. Theodore P. Desloge, Jr. Outpatient Center, Building B houses expanded physical therapy, neurology, wound care and hyperbaric medicine services, a nutrition wellness and diabetes center made possible through the support of Centene Charitable Foundation, an anticoagulation clinic and physician offices. In addition, construction has been completed in Building A of the Desloge Outpatient Center to expand the Marvin Wool Cardiac Rehabilitation Center and to add a new suite for PET/CT scan services.
 
St. Luke’s launched the public phase of its $40 million Advancing Excellence with Exceptional Care Campaign in January 2017 in conjunction with the dedication of its new outpatient services building. Gifts to the campaign are supporting the hospital’s capital and endowment needs. 
 
“To date, the Advancing Excellence Campaign has raised more than $36 million in gifts and pledges from individual, business and foundation donors, which demonstrates the outstanding generosity of the St. Louis region and our community’s commitment to St. Luke’s continued medical excellence," said Hugh Scott, III, St. Luke’s Hospital board of directors member and Advancing Excellence Campaign chairman. 
 
The campaign has received nine lead commitments of $1 million and above, which include the new outpatient center building naming gift from Mr. and Mrs. Theodore P. Desloge, Jr.; lead gifts from the late Jack C. Taylor as well as Joanne and Charles Knight to establish the Gary Olson Endowment Fund; and gifts for capital needs from the Pershing Charitable Trust, Mrs. Harlene E. Wool and Edward and Cynthia Potter. Other lead donors to the campaign wish to remain anonymous in their support.
