ALERT

We now accept walk-ins at designated COVID-19 sites during vaccination days and hours. You may still schedule your vaccination if you choose, or walk up to our mobile vaccination clinic which is open to everyone! Note: we require masks in all St. Luke's facilities, regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status. This helps us provide safe care in a safe environment for all patients. Access more information on COVID testing, visitor policy, safety practices, hospitalization data, and FAQs.
