St. Luke’s is a not-for-profit hospital with roots that date back to 1884, organized as Cedar Rapids’ first hospital. In 2009, St. Luke's marked a major milestone – 125 years of caring for eastern Iowans; the hospital’s original cornerstone remains today in the hospital chapel, but the face of St. Luke's is dramatically different than its humble beginnings.
According to historical records, the original St. Luke's hospital had the capacity for 15 beds. Today, St. Luke's is a fully accredited 532-bed hospital serving a seven-county area surrounding Cedar Rapids. St. Luke's offers a wide range of patient care services with strengths in heart care, obstetrics, newborn intensive care, pediatrics, physical medicine and rehabilitation, behavioral health, general surgery, and emergency care.
