Welcome to St. Luke's
! As president and chief executive officer, I am pleased to share a few of the special things about St. Luke's
It starts with you. In fact, you will often hear us say, "Our specialty is you." I invite you to experience our expert, personalized healthcare services focused on you and your family. At St. Luke's
, every patient is a VIP.
is a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare provider committed to improving the quality of life for our patients and the community. Our compassionate healthcare team furthers this mission by providing high quality, nationally-recognized care and achieving excellent patient satisfaction.
We also offer a broad range of services spanning your entire life. Since the day we cared for our first patient more than 150 years ago, St. Luke's
has grown from a single hospital location to an advanced network of care, with extraordinary physicians and other healthcare experts providing services in over 60 specialty areas across our 493-bed hospital in Chesterfield, Mo., 143-bed St. Luke's
Des Peres Hospital and more than 30 outpatient locations in the greater St. Louis
We are proud to be the area's only independent healthcare provider. We also value the affiliations, collaborations and partnerships we have established throughout our region and the nation that enable us to continue enhancing the services we provide our patients. For example, St. Luke's
is the exclusive alliance partner in St. Louis
of the nation's No. 1 heart hospital, Cleveland Clinic's Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute.
In addition, St. Luke's
is a leader in health education through our community outreach initiatives. As the region's only Spirit of Women hospital, St. Luke's
provides exceptional women's services, information and programs that help women and their families take action for better health.
My career in healthcare began more than three decades ago as a bedside nurse, and I know that by choosing us as your healthcare provider, you are trusting us with the gift of your health and the health of your loved ones. Partnering with you and your family to achieve optimal health is a privilege we cherish. Thank you for choosing St. Luke's
