St. Luke’s Hospital in Nablus is aptly named for the Christian evangelist, gospel writer, and physician. It is a general hospital of 60 beds that provides general and subspecialty medical and surgical services; intensive care; general and subspecialty outpatient clinics; rehabilitation; obstetrics; and neonatal intensive care.
Established more than 100 years ago, St. Luke’s was one of the first hospitals in the Nablus area and continues to assert a fresh and vital presence. A new emergency and trauma center is being equipped to establish its place in the area as a major injury and trauma referral center. A new neurosurgery program has begun to provide another needed service in the area. In addition, recent restructuring and reorganization will enhance programs in urology and orthopedics and ensure that the hospital adapts to the changing needs of its patients.
But the commission of St. Luke’s extends beyond its medical services by providing a prominent Christian presence in an area where few Christian families remain. In Nablus, which has seen some of the most difficult times of the past 40 years, this compassionate presence brings stability and balance to a complicated political environment and further enhances St. Luke’s place in the community.
