CHI St. Luke’s Health-Memorial paves the way for quality, innovative health care in East Texas and provides more than a quarter of a million patient services each year.
With hospitals in Lufkin, Livingston, San Augustine, and Memorial Specialty Hospital – the area’s only long-term acute care hospital – CHI St. Luke’s Health-Memorial provides millions of dollars in charity care and community support each year.
The opening of the area's first dedicated heart and stroke care center further supports our mission of service to the community. CHI St. Luke's Health-Memorial is now Lufkin’s only Joint Commission certified primary stroke care facility. Additionally, we are a regional cardiovascular care center and offer the latest in heart care from a highly trained team of heart surgeons and cardiologists.
Memorial offers a wide array of services, including the Temple Cancer Center, which is accredited by the Commission on Cancer. We are the first health care facility in Texas to acquire the DaVinci High Definition Robot for robotic assisted procedures in urology, gynecology and general surgery, and is currently the only hospital in Lufkin to boast two robotic systems, including the latest, most advanced robot, the da Vinci Xi. The Lufkin hospital also is known for providing the area’s only comprehensive diabetes, heart and stroke center—the Polk Education Center. Another center of excellence includes the Temple Imaging Center that offers some of the most advanced procedures in the area, including PET/CT scanning for cancer and Alzheimer’s, 64 Slice CT scanning, Open Bore MRI, 4D Ultrasound, and digital mammography. Other specialty areas include Orthopedic care, Women’s Services, Inpatient and Outpatient Rehabilitation, Wound Care and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, Kidney & Diabetes Treatment, Sleep Disorders Treatment and Express Lab.
