Due to the overwhelming surge in COVID-19 cases and the strain it has placed on health care capacity in the communities we serve, the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare has activated crisis standards of care statewide. We are open and available to see patients, but you may experience delays at our ERs, hospitals, and clinics. We appreciate your patience. Access more info on COVID testing, vaccination, visitor policy, hospitalization data, and FAQs.

St. Luke’s Boise Development Plan

St. Luke

Building on Our Promise to Boise

Since our founding in downtown Boise in 1902, St. Luke’s has been committed to the health of the communities we serve. And as Boise and the greater Treasure Valley have grown in the past 115-plus years, so have we, consistently building and upgrading our facilities to provide nationally recognized patient care and health-related services. 

St. Luke’s Master Plan for our Boise campus provides the blueprint by which we'll continue to meet the growing health care needs of the community. The Master Plan is the result of years of extensive study, planning, and collaboration with key stakeholders, including the City of Boise, the Ada County Highway District, and area residents. This exhaustive, thorough process included dozens of workshops, open houses, and neighborhood association meetings, and the plan has evolved—and improved—with input we've received along the way. 

The creation of the plan was guided by two fundamental priorities: First and foremost, the needs of our patients; and second, urban and transportation planning objectives. The result is a plan for a world-class health care facility that emphasizes patient safety and evidence-based design while incorporating significant and needed public infrastructure improvements that will enhance the overall connectivity of the surrounding area. The project also underscores St. Luke’s economic commitment and benefit to Idaho’s capital city—our home city.

We Welcome Your Questions

St. Luke’s is community owned and operated. We look forward to serving the people of our city and region for many years to come. We welcome any questions you may have about our campus plan, and are grateful for your interest.

Idaho Elks Children's Pavilion

The first phase of St. Luke’s Boise campus development project is done! The Idaho Elks Children’s Pavilion at the corner of Jefferson and Avenue B opened on September 3, 2019.

Bannock Street Corridor

After several years of planning, construction is complete and testing is underway on the redesigned Bannock Street corridor that runs through the heart of St. Luke's Boise Medical Center. The work has transformed the Bannock corridor into a dynamic shared space.

Central Plant and Parking Garage

To improve patient access and modernize St. Luke’s Boise Medical Center, construction is now complete on a new, joint central plant and parking garage. These new facilities provide much needed upgrades to hospital and help meet the health care needs of a growing population in the Treasure Valley.

Shipping and Receiving Facility

To support the growing Treasure Valley and increasing patient needs, St. Luke’s is updating and modernizing the Boise Medical Center. This includes the construction of a new shipping and receiving building, designed to be the main delivery drop-off and pick-up point for the hospital.

Future Phases

  • Build a new Hospital Tower
  • Expand and modernize St. Luke’s Cancer Institute
  • Expand and modernize St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital 
  • Expand and upgrade the current Hospital Tower

You Can Make a Difference

St. Luke's, a not-for-profit health system, will fund much of the cost through cash reserves and borrowing, but the magnitude of this essential project — which will meet the community’s demand for state-of-the-art services for today’s patients as well as future generations — requires that we raise at least $50 million through community philanthropy.
