About St. Luke's Children's Hospital

Our Mission: To improve the health of people in our region.

Our Vision: St. Luke's Children's will improve the health and well-being of children by aligning patients and families with providers to meet their unique needs through education and advocacy and through accessible, integrated, efficient, quality care across all clinical settings and in the home.

At the heart of St. Luke's Children's Hospital is the belief that all children should have access to the highest quality health care services available, regardless of their condition or their family's ability to pay. Like all children's hospitals, St. Luke's is committed to high quality, cost-effective clinical care, advocacy for children and families, education, and research.

Children often have very different health care needs than adults. When they are hospitalized, they require more intensive nursing care and other services than adults. And when they are very sick, children require regional centers of care that can bring together all the specialists they need.

At St. Luke's Children's Hospital, we care for more than 71,000 children every year. More than 140 skilled pediatricians and pediatric specialists work with referring physicians from around the region to provide high quality care for our young patients. They are joined in this effort by a staff of over 400 nurses, therapists, and a variety of other dedicated pediatric caregivers.

St. Luke's Children's Hospital has earned the trust and respect of thousands of children and their families, and we honor that trust as we help children heal. Every day our health care specialists renew their commitment to deliver the best, most compassionate care to the children of our region.

What is a Children's Hospital?

According to the National Association of Children's Hospitals and Related Institutions (NACHRI), children's hospitals are well known as centers of excellence in pediatric care. Within their walls and outpatient clinics reside the world's finest practitioners of medicine, nursing, therapy, and social work, who are devoted to children with the most challenging needs.

Children's hospitals are expert in the most basic health care needs of all children, from infants to teens, and even young adults. Because they are on the front lines of medical care, education, and research, children's hospitals serve the majority of the nation's children with special needs. In most states, they serve a disproportionate share of children who are uninsured and those who rely on the Medicaid program to pay for their health care.
