St. Luke’s at The Hill in Meridian

Building on Our Promise to the Community

A healthy community takes all of us. That’s why St. Luke’s has joined with community partners to make The Hill a reality in South Meridian. This pioneering project brings recreation, education, health, fitness and literacy to one location in this growing neighborhood. 

St. Luke’s presence includes a wide range of programs and services to prevent disease, screen for and minimize risk factors, promote local resources and address health issues through medical care, nutrition education, support groups, asthma education, physical activity and more.

About The Hill

The Hill is an innovative collaboration of the Treasure Valley Family YMCA, the West Ada School District, St. Luke’s Health System, the City of Meridian Parks and Recreation Department and the Meridian Library District. Located on 22.5 acres near the intersection of S. Eagle and Amity Roads, The Hill includes three main components:

  • Hillsdale Elementary School, opened in 2016 and is already at capacity with more than 650 students.
  • Hillsdale Park, a 10-acre city park, expected to be completed by spring 2018.
  • The 62,000-square-foot South Meridian YMCA with workout facilities, child development space, St. Luke’s Center for Lifestyle Medicine, school based health center and more.

St. Luke’s Role

St. Luke’s role in The Hill project is an investment in the community. “We are going to invest in resources so we can figure out new, innovative and meaningful ways to improve the health and well-being of the community,” says Chris Roth, senior vice president and chief operating officer. 

Center for Lifestyle Medicine

In this 8,000-square-foot space within the YMCA, St. Luke’s addresses the root causes of the most common serious health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, obesity, depression and metabolic syndrome. We also focus on these same root causes as we help people reduce their risk of complications before joint surgery or during pregnancy. 

Staff from St. Luke’s Department of Lifestyle Medicine help clients by zeroing in on diet, physical activity, tobacco treatment and positive psychology in an evidence-based, physician-directed, medically supervised setting. Patients referred by their doctors take part in guided, monitored interventions shown to greatly improve health and quality of life through medication, education and coaching. The space includes classrooms, a teaching kitchen, consultation rooms and a transitional gym.

St. Luke's Children's Health Clinic

Located within the YMCA and adjacent to the school, the clinic is a collaboration between the West Ada School District and St. Luke's. 

Designed with a shared commitment to support the health and well-being of children and families in south Meridian and the surrounding area, the clinic will be open to all children, not just those who attend Hillsdale Elementary School.

Health Clinics

Two St. Luke’s clinics provide a unique combination of medical services, including family medicine, pediatrics, physical therapy and behavioral health. 

Located near Hillsdale School, the YMCA and the park, this 16,000-square-foot, free-standing clinic houses health care providers who work as a team to address the medical needs of patients and improve access to care for the growing community. They also collaborate with the YMCA, Hillsdale Elementary School staff, the St. Luke's Children's Health Clinic and St. Luke’s lifestyle medicine experts on innovative and need-based school and adult programs.
