Return to Care


St. Luke's continues to take all necessary steps and precautions to protect our patients, visitors and healthcare team while serving our community. We work closely with local and state health departments as well as the Centers for Disease Control to ensure we have the most up-to-date information during this rapidly changing situation. In an effort to slow the transmission of COVID-19 and to help save lives across the St. Louis metropolitan area, St. Luke's Hospital joined BJC Healthcare, Mercy and SSM Health to create the St. Louis Metropolitan Pandemic Task Force. The task force builds on the coordinated work from our region's health systems, governmental and public health leaders to ensure collaboration for the best possible patient care and coordination of supplies, hospital beds and other critical assets.

To protect yourself and help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, the CDC recommends:
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, and for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a sleeve or a tissue when coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your face - eyes, nose and mouth - to prevent the spread of germs.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects, especially if someone is sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.

VISITOR POLICY AND ST. LUKE'S COVID-19 VACCINE REQUIREMENT FOR HOSPITAL VISITORS
Effective January 5, 2022: St. Luke's is committed to serving our patients and communities by providing exceptional patient-centric care. We recognize the importance of family members and friends as part of the healing process for patients, yet also must balance efforts to provide access to visitors with the need to prevent transmission of COVID-19 within our communities and facilities.

Effective January 5, 2022: St. Luke's patients will be limited to one visitor per day in inpatient units. Pediatric and OB patients will be allowed two visitors per day. Compassionate care visits for end-of-life patients will also be coordinated on an individual basis. Visiting hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Visitor guidelines and hours for outpatient services will be consistent with the patient's surgery, procedure or appointment.

Effective August 23, 2021: Visitors to inpatient units of our hospitals are required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination completion or documentation of a negative COVID-19 test result within the past three days (72 hours) and a photo I.D. Acceptable forms for proof of vaccination are the visitor's vaccination card or a photocopy or digital image of the card. Acceptable form for proof of a negative COVID-19 test result is documentation including the patient's name and test result issued from a clinical testing site (Urgent Care Center, health department testing site, etc.). Visitors in compliance with these requirements will be provided with a wrist band to wear at all times while in our facilities that day. Providing proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result will be required each day of hospital visitation.

Visitors needing COVID-19 tests should complete them at a testing site as described above prior to arriving at our hospitals to visit a patient. Results from COVID-19 self-test kits will not be accepted as documentation. St. Luke's is not providing testing for visitors at this time, other than in situations in which a visitor has accompanied a patient to the emergency department. In these circumstances, COVID-19 testing will be offered at no cost to the visitor on a one-time initial basis if the patient is admitted to the hospital for care. The same testing arrangements will apply when a visitor is accompanying a direct admit patient. COVID-19 testing will be offered Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the outpatient lab in the East Medical Office Building and from 3:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends and holidays at the main lab in the West Medical Office Building.


The following entrances on our hospital campuses are designated for inpatient visitor access:

St. Luke's Hospital Chesterfield: Main hospital entrance, East Medical Office Building - 1st Floor, West Medical Office Building - 2nd Floor

St. Luke's Des Peres Hospital: Main hospital entrance
  • Hospital visitor hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Visitor hours for outpatient services are consistent with the patient's surgery, procedure or appointment.

Masks must meet St. Luke's requirements: a disposable Level 2 or Level 3 isolation mask or an N95 respirator mask (no vent). If you do not have one of these masks, an approved mask will be supplied by St. Luke's.

  • Visitors are asked to follow hand hygiene and physical distancing safety measures, as well as any guidelines specific to the patient care area.
