Saint Luke's Hospital In Your Home

Hospital-level care in the comfort of home. 

Saint Luke’s now delivers hospital-level care to patients in the comfort of their own home. This first-in-the-region program, Saint Luke’s Hospital In Your Home, combines high-quality, hands-on care with an around-the-clock, virtual care platform.

Hospital In Your Home patients benefit from a quieter environment, visitors anytime, and better sleep.  Similar programs at industry-leading hospitals have experienced lower hospital readmission rates, higher patient satisfaction, and improved outcomes.

Through the Hospital In Your Home program, patients who meet certain criteria can receive care for a wide range of conditions that would traditionally require inpatient hospitalization, including:

  • Congestive heart failure
  • Pneumonia
  • Gastroenteritis
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

How it works

Patients are first examined in a Saint Luke’s Emergency Department or inpatient unit to determine if they meet certain criteria. Once admitted, a nurse practitioner will visit the patient’s home to perform a full admission assessment, initiate treatments, and educate the patient and caregivers.



Virtual care    
The dedicated team in the 24/7 physician-led Saint Luke’s Command Center remotely monitors vitals, answers questions, oversees medications, provides virtual check-ups, and initiates emergency responses if needed. The Command Center team is comprised of Saint Luke’s providers and staff, including:

  • Physicians
  • Nurses
  • Advanced practice providers (APPs)
  • Care coordinators

Saint Luke's Hospital In Your Home includes a full technology kit configured in the patient’s home by our team. The kit’s FDA-approved medical devices automatically send vitals to the Command Center. The technology also allows patients to communicate with the care team night and day by phone or video.

In-person care    
Saint Luke's partnered with Medically Home, a national leader in the hybrid care model, to assemble a network of service providers that deliver care in a patient's home. APPs, community paramedics, and other health care providers make home visits to provide in-person care, including: 

  • Check-ups
  • Lab tests
  • Mobile imaging
  • IV medications
  • Rehabilitation therapies
  • Technology assistance 

Saint Luke's is pleased to introduce this innovative care model to Kansas City, continuing to providing the best care right where patients need it.
