Saint Louis University HospitalSaint Louis University Hospital is a 356-licensed bed quaternary/tertiary referral center located in the heart of the city of St. Louis. Approximately 75 percent of our patients are drawn from a 150-mile radius of the hospital, and the rest come to us from outside this 150-mile area. Through our affiliation as the teaching hospital for Saint Louis University, we provide our patients and their families with an environment of medical innovation. We are smaller than most major academic medical centers, which allows our physicians and staff the chance to know our patients and their families better. Working with us in this endeavor are our medical staff partners, SLUCare, the physicians of Saint Louis University. The hospital admits more than 17,000 patients annually, performs more than 200 organ transplants a year and is a Level I Trauma Center that treats more than 2,000 major trauma cases a year. The hospital has a medical staff of more than 450 physicians, employs more than 2,000 health professionals and has an active volunteer staff of more than 200.
SLUCare is a leading patient-centered, physician-guided provider of health care services in the St. Louis region, consisting of physicians, nurse practitioners, medical assistants and related professionals who provide high-quality care for patients locally, regionally and nationally. SLUCare is the only academic medical practice in St. Louis fully accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care Inc. This accreditation is a voluntary process through which the quality of SLUCare services and performance is measured against nationally recognized standards.
