St. Luke's Hospital is a 493-bed, full-service, nonprofit Hospital with more than 750 physicians on its medical staff, experts in more than 60 medical specialties. The hospital had its beginnings in November of 1865. A small group of concerned Episcopalians met to decide how the Episcopal Church could respond to the health care needs of persons in the St. Louis area. The hospital was established on Feb. 28, 1866.
The Episcopal Church led this health care ministry called St. Luke's until 1948. At that time the Presbyterian Church (USA) joined the Episcopalians to co-sponsor the Hospital. Both continue to be involved in St. Luke's to this day.
We are a premier regional health care provider located in west St. Louis County. In its 150-year history, St. Luke's has grown from a single hospital location to an advanced network of care. It provides personalized healthcare services and offers 25 other locations across the greater St. Louis area, bringing quality healthcare services such as urgent care, imaging and primary and specialty care close to home.
St. Luke's also operates Surrey Place, a 120-bed skilled nursing facility, providing quality care in attractive, comfortable surroundings. Also, our Pediatric Care Center is a mission-based agency of St. Luke's Hospital that has been providing care for medically underserved and underinsured children in the St. Louis region.
St. Luke's is nationally-recognized for quality care and consistently earns high patient satisfaction scores. In addition, St. Luke's is the exclusive St. Louis affiliate of the nation's No. 1 heart hospital, Cleveland Clinic's Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute.
Four adjoining doctors' office buildings and two outpatient centers are also located on the St. Luke's Hospital campus. St. Luke's Hospital's Institute for Health Education, located within a five-story atrium between two medical office buildings, offers an attractive setting for providing health information to the community. Our mission is to improve the health of the community we serve facilitated through education, the early detection of disease and the promotion of healthy lifestyles.
