St. Luke's Hospital is a 314-bed health care facility in Maumee, Ohio. It was the last independent hospital in the Toledo area before joining the ProMedica Health System in 2010.[1]

Facilities[edit]

The hospital is equipped with a helipad for Medical evacuation.[2] It acquired the da Vinci robotic surgical system in 2007.[3]

History[edit]

William Gillette, a Toledo surgeon, opened a small health clinic in 1898. It expanded into a 50-bed hospital in 1906, opening as the fourth hospital in the Toledo area. Robinwood Hospital was purchased in 1926 by the Federated Lutheran Benevolent Society of Toledo, making it a not-for-profit Christian institution.

The hospital was renamed St. Luke's Hospital in 1951 to emphasize its Christian identity. A lack of space meant forced the opening of a new site on October 29, 1972. An original capacity of 206 patients was upgraded over 20 years and two expansions, creating the present-day 314-bed St. Luke's Hospital.[4]
