Comprehensive Heart Care

The care our patients receive at St. Luke's Hospital is our number one priority. That's why we're proud to be among the hospitals and agencies recognized by the American Heart Association's Mission: Lifeline program for our excellence in improving quality of patient care. In addition, St. Luke's has demonstrated sustained achievement in ACTION Registry for eight consecutive quarters and met a performance standard of 90% for specific performance measures to receive the 2017 Platinum Performance Achievement Award. St. Luke's is just one of 193 hospitals nationwide to receive this honor.

When it comes to matters of the heart, turn to Siouxland's highest rated heart team, St. Luke's Cardiology Services and Cardiovascular Associates.

St. Luke's Hospital offers a full spectrum of advanced cardiovascular services.

Electrophysiology and Cardiac Catheterization Labs

St. Luke's cares for heart patients in a dedicated electrophysiology (EP) and cardiac catheterization labs. Just steps away from St. Luke's Emergency Department (ED), the location of our labs is one of the reasons our door-to-balloon times are faster than the national average. This means less time is needed between the patient's arrival in the ED to when they are moved to the cardiac cath lab to receive heart care. In the end, this means less heart muscle will be lost and the patient's outcome will be better.

  • The cardiac catheterization lab is equipped with an imaging and hemodynamic monitoring system which monitors and visualizes blood circulation to carefully track and record heart function.
  • The EP lab has advanced equipment, such as the Siemens Biplane, which creates improved visualization, because multiple images of the heart can be seen at one time.
Coronary Care Unit
For patients who are having procedures that require added patient monitoring and care, we offer a dedicated coronary care unit on the hospital's fourth floor. The unit features calming artwork from the Wrede and Barbara Smith Art and Healing Project and state-of-the-art iBeds that offer extended patient comfort with music, translation and charting capabilities. The unit is staffed with health care professionals trained specifically in coronary care, providing expert, compassionate care for patients in critical recovery after a heart procedure. New monitoring and nurse calling systems, along with a sophisticated nurses' station, donated by Cardiovascular Associates, in memory of Dr. Tjeerdsma, are all amenities that make this unit ideal for patient recovery.

The Levitt Guest Center

The Levitt Guest Center, located at St. Luke's just down the hall from the Bomgaars Center for Cancer Care, was created through a generous gift by Nancy Levitt Rosenthal of Sioux City in memory of her first husband, David Levitt, who died of pancreatic cancer.

This guest center offers family members quiet suites with private baths where they can rest and renew their spirits. Up to seven families can stay in the guest center at one time.

Because of Mrs. Rosenthal's significant gift, there is no charge to stay at the Levitt Center. Gifts of $20 or more per night are welcome and are used to help maintain the facility so others may enjoy its proximity and comfort for years to come.
