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. On July 1, 2016 St. Luke's Hospital became independent once again.

Facilities[edit]

The hospital is equipped with a helipad for Medical evacuation.[1] It acquired the da Vinci robotic surgical system in 2007.[2]

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.[3]
