About Our Region
St. Luke’s Boise has served the citizens of the Treasure Valley for more than a century. Known as the “City of Trees,” Boise is Idaho’s capital city—both a cultural center and a playground for those who love the outdoors.
A vibrant downtown area affords fine dining, theatre, music, and college and semi-professional sports. The Greenbelt follows the beautiful Boise River corridor for more than 30 miles, and the Boise foothills are home to miles of hiking and biking trails. Located within minutes of premiere ski slopes, whitewater rafting, mountain biking, and soaring basalt cliffs, Boise’s location provides stunning mountain views and majestic high desert sunsets.
Boise’s strong economy features leading employers such as high-tech businesses, Fortune 500 companies, state government, universities, corporate headquarters, and regional health centers. Despite our rapid growth, Boise still maintains a friendly neighborhood feel.
The Sun Valley-Ketchum Area
St. Luke’s Wood River opened in 2000 in the world-renowned resort area of Sun Valley. The beautiful Wood River Valley is full of charm and excitement, including the annual “trailing” of thousands of sheep right down Main Street Ketchum in the fall, the Sun Valley Symphony outdoor
summer concerts, and the exhilarating hiking trails, ski runs, and top-rated golf courses.
The sparkling rivers, glacial lakes, and soaring mountains of the Wood River Valley reflect the special quality of life in this community, and so does the hospital. Inside the brick and glass walls of this 25-bed critical access hospital, and in local St. Luke’s clinics, experts in emergency medicine, orthopedic surgery, OB/GYN, primary care, and more provide high quality health care services to a growing and diverse area.
St. Luke’s Meridian is a 165-bed hospital that opened in 2001 to serve the growing communities west of our capital city. Home to Idaho’s busiest Emergency Department, St. Luke’s Meridian also features an accredited Chest Pain Center, Level II NICU, and the most advanced cardiovascular
rehab center in the state.
Located just 10 miles from Boise, Meridian is a family-centered
suburb that offers excellent schools, affordable
housing, a welcoming business climate, and an active
community life. A wide range of recreational opportunities is
readily available close to home, and with direct interstate
access, Meridian residents can easily take full advantage of the cultural offerings and professional sporting events in Boise and surrounding communities.
Twin Falls and Jerome
In 2006, St. Luke’s and Magic Valley Regional Medical Center joined together to form the Idaho-based, not-for-profit St. Luke’s Health System. As a result of the new partnership, the former county hospital transitioned to become St. Luke’s Magic Valley. In 2011, we opened the new medical center—a 700,000 square-foot facility that is the most advanced hospital in the state.
Located 120 miles southeast of Boise, Twin Falls is a growing community with strong agricultural roots, a dedication to family life, and a richness of western traditions such as farming, hunting, and fishing. The Magic Valley was named for the lush areas created by early settlers’ vision of using the mighty Snake River to irrigate their fields. Today, the name reflects the fertile valleys as well as the city of Twin Falls and its surrounding communities.
One of those communities is Jerome, home to St. Luke’s
Jerome, a 25-bed critical access hospital that joined
St. Luke’s Health System in 2011. St. Luke’s Jerome has a
strong focus on emergency medicine, OB/GYN, family
medicine, geriatric care, disease prevention, and wellness.
Opened in 1952 to serve the people of south central Idaho as a primary care facility, St. Luke’s Jerome today builds on its proud heritage to meet the challenges of 21st century rural health care.
In 2010, McCall Memorial Hospital joined St. Luke’s Health System and became St. Luke’s McCall. This 15-bed community hospital, founded in 1956, is located in the central Idaho mountains about 100 miles north of Boise. The hospital provides 24-hour emergency services, inpatient and outpatient care, surgical care, maternal and childbirth services, Hospice care, and the Center for Health Promotion.
The McCall area is a recreation paradise in winter and summer, home to Brundage Mountain Ski Resort—which boasts some of the best snow in Idaho—as well as beautiful Payette Lake and Cascade Reservoir. The area is known for its stunning mountain peaks and wide variety of local and backcountry trails.
Western Idaho/Eastern Oregon
St. Luke’s is expanding to meet the needs of residents of western Idaho and eastern Oregon, from Canyon County to the Idaho-Oregon border and beyond to Baker City, Oregon. This ruggedly scenic area includes a few medium-sized cities, several small towns, and a wide region that is largely rural and sparsely populated.
St. Luke’s Nampa offers a full-service emergency department as well as lab and imaging services, and St. Luke’s MSTI cancer centers provide expert care in Nampa and Fruitland. St. Luke’s primary and specialty care clinics are located throughout the region, and are supplemented with our mobile mammography coach and regular visits from specialists such as cardiologists, oncologists, urologists, pulmonologists, and cardiology technologists.
