For more than 60 years, our hospital has been the center of health care for our families, neighbors and friends. Since 1956, our community has worked to ensure McCall has a vibrant, forward-thinking medical center where the best physicians want to practice and patients want to receive care.
Today that means making significant changes to our hospital. We’ve maximized every space and squeezed every bit of efficiency out of our hospital, which has been remodeled, renovated, and remodeled again for decades. And our region is growing and aging, increasing the demand for healthcare services. Emergency Department visits have increased by 59 percent since 2010; surgeries have increased by 238 percent since 2010; and lab tests are up 43 percent in the same time period.It’s time to truly bring St. Luke’s McCall into the 21st century and ensure we can continue to provide the high-quality, convenient care the people of our community deserve. And although medicine, technology and science have exploded with possibility, what hasn’t changed is the value we all place on having the right care, right here in McCall.
McCall’s facility replacement project received final approval at the Feb. 28, 2019, McCall City Council meeting.
The council members unanimously approved the final plat, planned unit development and development agreement. The design was reviewed and approved by the McCall Planning and Zoning commissioners on Feb. 5, 2019.
In 2018, the majority of road and utility improvements around St. Luke’s McCall was completed. This spring the remaining site work will be completed, including rerouting Hewitt Street to make room for a new two-story structure to the north of the existing hospital.
The goal this build season is to complete the shell of the structure, to allow for interior work to take place next winter.
St. Luke's is community owned and operated. We look forward to serving the people of the West Central Mountains region for many years to come. We welcome any questions you may have about our medical center expansion, and are grateful for your interest.

Dated infrastructure, lack of space, growth of services and an aging population all contribute to the need for St. Luke’s to transform our McCall hospital to deliver innovative and exceptional care for decades to come.
To make the St. Luke’s McCall facility replacement project a reality, the St. Luke’s McCall Foundation will raise a minimum of $5 million of the estimated $40 million needed to build, remodel, equip and furnish the new facility. The balance of funding will be provided through St. Luke’s Health System capital investment funds.
Generosity is woven into the fabric of our community. We hope you will help fund this much-needed hospital expansion. Our goal is to raise $5 million through philanthropy.
