St Luke's Hospital was a psychiatric hospital in Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire, England. The building provided a range of services for adults and older people with mental health problems and learning disabilities. It contained the regional medium-secure psychiatric unit in a modern building to the rear of the hospital called the Hutton Centre. It also housed an adolescent unit for the assessment and treatment of youngsters with psychological or psychiatric problems. The adolescent unit was headed by Dr Westerholm. The 1,010-bed James Cook University Hospital was built within the grounds of St Luke's Hospital from 1893 to 1898 and was first named Middlesbrough Borough Asylum.

The building was demolished in 2010 to make way for the new Roseberry Park facility, with more than 300 inpatient beds.[1] Like St Luke's, Roseberry Park is run by the Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Trust, which also runs the modern West Park Hospital in Darlington and Lanchester Road Hospital in Durham.[2]
