About St. Luke's Heart

St. Luke's Heart Photo People are surviving heart and vascular disease in greater numbers every year. They are living longer with a higher quality of life, yet we continue to be challenged by the impact of cardiovascular disease on our society.

Cardiovascular disease is now the leading cause of death in the U.S. for both men and women, affecting more people than all forms of cancer combined.

St. Luke's performs more heart procedures than any other hospital in Idaho, providing cardiac care for heart patients throughout Idaho and in parts of Oregon, Nevada, and Utah.

St. Luke’s supports the region through partnerships with physicians, hospitals, and regional clinics where patients are cared for in their own communities. We offer classes and screenings to promote heart and vascular health and support those living with cardiovascular disease. St. Luke’s has provided hundreds of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to local schools, civic organizations, and businesses, and has worked with area hospitals to achieve standardized clinical protocols for heart attack patients.

As the region’s most comprehensive referral center for heart and vascular disease, St. Luke’s is honored to serve the people in our local communities through education, treatment, and care.

The good news is that people are surviving heart and vascular disease in greater numbers every year. They are living longer with a higher quality of life. The bad news is that the incidence of heart disease continues to grow, due in large part to obesity, poor nutrition, and sedentary lifestyles. Cardiovascular disease is now the leading cause of death in the U.S. for both men and women, affecting more people than all forms of cancer combined.
