The CARES Act authorized $100 billion in funding to hospitals and other health care providers to be distributed through the Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund (“Relief Funds”). St. Luke’s recognized government assistance revenue from Relief Funds for facilities in Ada County in the amount of $23,939,192 and $36,145,669 for the years that ended September 30, 2022, and 2021, respectively. These relief funds were to compensate for revenue lost because of suspended elective procedures due to Covid-19. The unreimbursed, charity care and bad debt amounts disclosed in this report do not include this government assistance revenue.
St. Luke’s provides health care to eligible patients without charge or at a reduced rate, based upon a sliding
scale derived from federal poverty guidelines.
One hundred percent of St. Luke’s revenue after expenses is reinvested in the organization to serve the communities in southwestern Idaho and eastern Oregon in the form of staff, buildings or new technology.
We continued our investments in the architectural, planning and project costs related to updating the Boise Medical Center.
Development and construction of a new state-of-the-art orthopedic facility is underway at 27th Street and W. Fairview Avenue.

WWe are dedicated to updating equipment and expanding our clinics and facilities to give patients the best quality of care.
Our work assessing and addressing community needs would not be possible without a visionary board of directors and dedicated community boards. We are grateful for their partnership and guidance.
