Children's Initiatives: Every Child Has a Story

St. Luke's Foundation (Cedar Rapids)

Birth Care Center

The birth care center is delivering amazing babies every day. Our Center for Women’s and Children’s Health is exceptional in delivering the highest quality of care with a strong family-centered focus.

Child Protection Center – St. Luke’s

A child who is a victim of abuse suffers in darkness. But with your support and care from the St. Luke's Child Protection Center (CPC), they have a promise of a better tomorrow.

Dental Health Center

It shouldn't hurt to smile. But many of the low income and special needs patients of the Dr. Rhys B. Jones Dental Health Center (DHC) are living with chronic mouth pain. Many have never been to a dentist.


St. Luke’s is the only Level III Maternal and Neonatal Center as determined by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) in the Cedar Rapids area. St. Luke's ranks among the best hospitals in the world in providing NICU care for babies who are 22-23 gestational weeks and up.


The Pediatrics and Pediatric/Intermediate Units care for children from infants through 18 years of age. Children admitted to one of the 17 beds in the Pediatrics and Pediatric/Intermediate Units can suffer from a wide range of illnesses or injuries.
