History[edit]

St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital was founded by the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in 1954 and was one of the first hospitals established in the Texas Medical Center.[1][5] In 1962, Denton A. Cooley founded the Texas Heart Institute, which became affiliated with St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital.[8] It was there that Denton A. Cooley performed the first successful heart transplantation in the United States in 1968 and the first artificial heart implantation in the world in 1969.[5]

In 1990, St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital's 26-story O'Quinn Medical Tower was constructed and has since become a Texas Medical Center icon. In 1997, the Episcopal Diocese of Texas established the St. Luke's Episcopal Health System.[5] It established its first freestanding emergency center in 2000 and opened two more in subsequent years.[5][1] St. Luke's continued to expand as it opened a hospital in The Woodlands, Texas, in 2003.[9] A year later, St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital entered into an affiliation agreement with Baylor College of Medicine. St. Luke's then proceeded to open a hospital in Sugar Land, Texas, in 2008, another in The Woodlands in 2009, and two more in Northwest Houston and East Houston in 2010.[5][1]

In 2013, St. Luke's Episcopal Health System announced the transfer of its hospitals to Catholic Health Initiatives, a national nonprofit, and changed its name to CHI St. Luke's Health.[5][10] CHI St. Luke's Health has continued to expand, opening its seventh hospital campus in January 2016.[11][12][1]
