Community Benefit Report

Continuing Our Legacy of Excellence in Health Care

From our founding in 1902 to 2022, when we were recognized as one of the top 15 health systems in the nation for the ninth consecutive year, St. Luke’s has always been a leader in quality care and a dedicated community partner.

As Idaho’s only locally based, not-for-profit, community owned and led health system, we are committed to providing all patients with the highest quality health care, regardless of their ability to pay.

Report of Community Benefits 2023

St. Luke’s primary service area is Ada County, with our secondary service area covering southwest, south-central and west-central Idaho, eastern Oregon and northern Nevada. The numbers below provide a broad overview of the rich benefits St. Luke’s provides to local communities in these counties: Ada, Blaine, Canyon, Elmore, Jerome, Twin Falls and Valley. All numbers are current as of the fiscal year ending Sept. 30, 2023.

Community Needs Determination Process

St. Luke’s community health efforts are directed by community needs assessments, St. Luke’s community boards and Community Health and Engagement. In 2023, St. Luke’s and partners conducted the first joint Community Health Needs Assessment, which is designed to help us better understand the most significant health challenges facing the individuals and families in our service areas.

Community Health and Engagement, in collaboration with internal and external stakeholders, is responsible for developing, implementing and maintaining optimal community health initiatives designed to address our communities’ most significant health needs.
