In February 1989, Saint Luke’s North Hospital opened its doors. Over the last 30 years, we have continued to grow to meet the changing needs of the Northland.

As the only hospital in Platte County, we are proud to contribute to the economic development of the community: Today we have more than 800 employees who live, work, and volunteer in the Northland community. We also currently have more than 500 of the finest physicians in the Kansas City area, encompassing nearly every specialty.
