Your charitable gifts to St. Luke’s have helped us purchase medical equipment, support wellness and prevention programs for all ages, and meet our patients' needs for expert care. From screening mammography to complex heart surgery to hospice care, it’s all about what’s best for our patients…and those who love them.
Building Hope for Cancer Patients
St. Luke’s Cancer Institute, formerly known as St. Luke's MSTI, was founded in 1971 when the field of oncology was in its infancy. Today we’re Idaho’s largest provider of cancer services and a nationally recognized leader in cancer research, delivering skilled, compassionate, leading-edge care for thousands of patients and their families every year.
Your gift to St. Luke’s Cancer Institute will help us upgrade technology and facilities in Boise, Meridian, Nampa, and Fruitland, expand services at our children’s cancer center in Boise, and increase outreach services for people in rural and underserved communities.
Saving Hearts, Touching Lives
The first open-heart surgery in Idaho was performed at St. Luke’s in 1968. Today, more people turn to us for heart and vascular care than any other hospital in the state. Technology is advancing rapidly, and our regional population is growing. St. Luke’s Heart is not only keeping pace, but is leading the field.
Your gift will help us build a new state-of-the-art Heart Hospital on the Boise campus — a regional referral center for acute, outpatient, preventive, and rehabilitative cardiovascular services. The new Heart Hospital will allow us to continue our tradition of providing high quality, effective, comprehensive patient care, and attracting and retaining expert cardiovascular physicians and staff.
Caring for Every Child
At the heart of St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital is the belief that all children should have access to high quality healthcare, regardless of their condition or their family’s ability to pay. As Idaho’s only Children’s Hospital, St. Luke’s is home to more than 120 skilled pediatricians and pediatric specialists who work with referring physicians from around the region to provide expert care for our young patients, right here at home.
Your gift to St. Luke’s Children’s will help us build a new Children’s Pavilion for outpatient services that will connect directly to the Children’s Hospital. The pavilion will be home to physician clinics and rehabilitation, as well as a healing arts and health resource center for children and families.
Hospice Care at the End of Life
St. Luke’s Hospice provides compassionate, comforting, end-of-life care, meeting each patient’s individual wishes and needs, enabling them to die peacefully — and to live as fully as possible until the moment of death. Your gift will help us continue this important work.
Imagine being ill and unable to afford gas for your car to make your daily trips to chemotherapy or radiation. Or missing work due to prolonged illness, sometimes for months at a time. Imagine not having a place to stay when you bring your child to Boise for surgery. Your gift to the Patient Assistance Fund will help cover costs such as meal vouchers, gas cards, temporary housing, and medication — making a lifesaving difference in the lives of our patients and their families.
