ST. LUKE’S HOSPITAL
St. Luke’s Hospital, established in 1855, is exceptionally well known for our Level 1 Trauma Center, as well as for our close relationship with the communities we care for. Serving the West Side and Upper Manhattan, St. Luke’s is an academic affiliate of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. We are a 541-bed full-service community and tertiary hospital.
From our founding, St. Luke’s has emphasized an extra measure of compassion and sensitivity. Nurses here are instrumental in continuing this close relationship with the community. St. Luke's also supports community health-focused activities. In 2010, St. Luke’s Medical Group launched its new primary care center – to bring the highest quality care to the underserved populations of Central Harlem and Morningside Heights.
In 1979, St. Luke’s merged with Roosevelt Hospital. They are two separate hospitals that are part of one medical center. Each is distinguished in its own right.
