Founded on February 28, 1866 by a group of concerned Episcopalians and joined in ministry by the Presbyterians in 1948, St. Luke's Hospital is part of the healing ministry of the Episcopal and Presbyterian (USA) churches.
At St. Luke's, we celebrate Founders' Day by remembering our heritage and honoring our founders. We celebrate by reaffirming our mission of healing, which grounds all the services we provide to the greater St. Louis area. We celebrate by continuing to expand our healing presence as we improve the health of the community in body, mind and spirit.
"Conceived in the hearts of those who saw the need, Born under those influences that only the tender-hearted can give, Nurtured by those whose time is without price, And brought to fruition by those who desire to serve the Lord."
Frank V. Hammar President of the Board of Directors - 1928
Celebrating 150 Years of Excellence
In 2016, St. Luke's Hospital will look back and celebrate our past accomplishments while looking ahead to the future and the possibilities those opportunities hold for us. This historic year is truly a momentous occasion, as it allows us to celebrate a century and a half of medical innovation and exceptional care for our patients and their families. Thanks to our talented colleagues and our generous family of supporters, St. Luke's Hospital has set the standard for medical excellence not only in St. Louis, but nationally. The hallmark of St. Luke's Hospital has always been its ability to deliver quality healthcare with compassion while meeting the needs of our community. As we continue this focus, we thank all those who proceeded us in our mission, and celebrate them for their commitment to healing and to this community.
