Funding Priorities

Your gifts can support St. Luke’s as we work to ensure that you and your family receive care as close to home as possible. 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.

St. Luke's MSTI
Building Hope for Cancer Patients


St. Luke’s Mountain States Tumor Institute (MSTI) was founded in 1971 when the field of oncology was in its infancy. Today we are 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.

We will meet the needs of our growing population by upgrading technology and facilities at the sites in Boise, Meridian, Nampa, and Fruitland, including the continued expansion of our Pediatric Oncology facilities at St. Luke’s Boise. St. Luke’s MSTI will continue to increase outreach services for people in rural and underserved communities.

St. Luke’s Heart
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 in the field of cardiovascular medicine, and our regional population is growing. St. Luke’s Heart is not only keeping pace, but is leading the field.

To continue our tradition of providing high quality, effective, comprehensive patient care and attracting and retaining expert cardiovascular physicians and staff, St. Luke’s Heart will build a new state-of- the-art Heart Hospital on the Boise campus. Your gifts can help us build this Heart Hospital—a regional referral center for acute, outpatient, preventative, and rehabilitative cardiovascular services.

St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital
Caring for Every Child

Children's Hospital
At the heart of St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital is the belief that all children should have access to high quality health care, 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.

Over the next decade, St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital will grow to encompass the entire east tower of our Boise medical center. We will expand the Children’s Specialty Center in Boise and establish new Children’s Specialty Centers throughout the region, increase pediatric research, renovate Pediatric Oncology facilities in Boise, and continue to bring advanced care to children and families in all the communities we serve.

St. Luke’s Hospice

St. Luke’s Hospice provides compassionate, comforting end-of-life care, enhancing quality of life without aggressive curative or life support measures. Our Hospice professionals work in partnership with patients, families, and physicians to create a plan of care tailored to meet each patient’s individual wishes and needs, enabling them to die peacefully, and to live as fully as possible until the moment of death.

Patient Assistance

Imagine being ill and unable to afford gas for your car to make your daily trips to chemotherapy or radiation. Imagine missing work due to prolonged illness, sometimes for months at a time. Meal vouchers, gas cards, and help with temporary housing and medication through the Patient Assistance Fund can make a lifesaving difference in the lives of our patients.
