Cancer Care, Wellness & Support

We know cancer is not an easy journey. A cancer patient needs hope to carry them through the tough days. Hope comes from knowing they have the best care available.

Childrens Initiatives: Every Child Has a Story

Our goal is to write the happiest ending possible for each child whose life we touch. St. Luke's is the place where young patients get the special care they need, from a new life just entering the world to an abused child or a teen struggling with depression. We're here for families, too, with unique services like Eastern Iowa's only Ronald McDonald Family Room.

Heart Care Services

St. Luke’s is home to the nationally recognized Nassif Heart & Vascular Center, the largest and most comprehensive cardiovascular center in the area. Our commitment to cutting-edge treatment, along with the growing number of patients seeking heart care and needing our unique expertise is why St. Luke’s Foundation has a goal to raise $3 million in support of the $25 million heart and vascular expansion.

Physical Medicine & Rehab

The Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation team at UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s is one of the most experienced in the state. We are proud that 96.9% of our patients achieve their rehab goals.

Scholarships, Awards & Grants

Through the generosity of our donors, UnityPoint Health – St. Luke's Foundation is able to provide grants, awards and scholarships. These programs help further our mission to support UnityPoint Health – St. Luke's in providing the healthcare we'd like our loved ones to receive.

Accelerating Our Impact

The greatest and most exciting opportunities do not typically happen according to schedule. Gifts designated to the Area of Greatest Need provide UnityPoint Health – St. Luke's Foundation leaders with the versatility to allocate resources where and when they are needed most. Similar gifts have helped purchase state-of-the-art equipment and technology, improved our physical campus and supported community projects.

When you give to UnityPoint Health and designate your support to the area of greatest need, your unrestricted gift is instrumental in helping us provide the high-quality care that our patients have come to expect while allowing us to react quickly to the emerging needs of health care.
