Effective today, the hospital is named St. Luke's Des Peres Hospital.
Chesterfield, Mo. , May 1, 2018
St. Luke’s Hospital has finalized the purchase of Des Peres Hospital from Tenet Healthcare Corporation. The acquisition also includes the Des Peres Medical Office Building and Tenet-owned physician practices in St. Louis. 

Effective today, the hospital is named St. Luke’s Des Peres Hospital. The 143-bed hospital has served the community for more than 40 years, and it provides quality medical and surgical services.

“St. Luke’s is the St. Louis area’s only independent healthcare provider, and we are confident that welcoming St. Luke’s Des Peres Hospital into our family is a win for everyone,” said Christine M. Candio, RN, FACHE, St. Luke’s president and chief executive officer. “Patients will have uninterrupted access to high quality care, and our independent healthcare network will grow stronger and have the opportunity to have a broader positive impact on the community as both hospitals and our talented team members build on each other’s strengths. Now, we will engage in a collaborative process to determine our future plans to further our mission of improving the quality of life for patients and the community.”

Candio is inviting community members to two meetings focused on what the acquisition means for residents. The meetings are Tuesday, May 22 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. and Thursday, May 24 from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. at The Lodge Des Peres (1050 Des Peres Road). Candio and other representatives from both hospitals will be available. To register, visit stlukes-stl.com or call 314-542-4848.
