Recognized for its commitment to education and research, Saint Luke's is world-renowned for clinical care and innovation at its Saint Luke's Mid America Heart Institute and Saint Luke's Brain and Stroke Institute. In addition, Saint Luke's is a regional leader in cancer care, provides the area's highest level of neonatal care, and operates the region's only ICU.

In 2003, the Health System's tertiary facility, Saint Luke's Hospital of Kansas City, became only the second hospital to receive the nation's premier quality honor, the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.
