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 will bring recreation, education, health, fitness and literacy to one location in this growing neighborhood.
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:
In this 8,000-square-foot space within the YMCA, St. Luke’s will address the root causes of the most common serious health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, obesity, depression and metabolic syndrome. We’ll 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 will 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 will take part in guided, monitored interventions shown to greatly improve health and quality of life through medication, education and coaching. The space will include classrooms, a teaching kitchen, consultation rooms and a transitional gym.
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.
This St. Luke’s clinic, open to the public and offering extended hours, will 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 will house health care providers who will work as a team to address the medical needs of patients and improve access to care for the growing community. They will also collaborate with the YMCA, Hillsdale Elementary School staff, the School-Based Health Center and St. Luke’s lifestyle medicine experts on innovative and need-based school and adult programs.
