Saint Luke`s Hospital

Saint Luke's Hospital (SLH), one of nine hospitals in Saint Luke's health system, is located in Kansas City, Missouri. As a non-profit, six-state referral center, Saint Luke’s extends its services throughout the Midwest. Saint Luke's Hospital began its services in 1882, as a 50-bed institution at 10th and Campbell streets. In 1923, it moved to a six-story building, its present location on Wornall Road. Today, SLH has evolved into a 629-bed tertiary care hospital that excels in more than 56 medical specialties. For instance, the Mid-America Heart Institute, a 2003 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award winner, is recognized as the area’s premier cardiovascular center. The 47-bed Cancer Institute, licensed by the states of Missouri and Kansas, offers comprehensive cancer services, screening, community outreach, and education. SLH’s Children’s SPOT (Speech, Physical and Occupational Therapy) is a center of excellent rehabilitation therapies for children with disabilities and developmental delays. The Stroke Center at Saint Luke's Hospital is the only dedicated stroke unit in the region. Other areas of specialization include neurology, orthopedic, maternity care, and diabetics/endocrinology. Rehabilitation, home care, and hospice services are offered as well.
