Saint Luke's Health System will close two Saint Luke's South Community Hospital locations in Kansas as part of a strategic plan to focus resources on higher volume locations and continue to provide fast access to emergency care where there is the greatest patient demand. 

The two locations impacted include the Saint Luke's Community Hospitals in Olathe and Shawnee, Kansas. Emergency care will continue to be available at both locations until Dec. 23, 2022. Inpatient care will close sooner. All impacted employees will have opportunities to stay with Saint Luke’s. 

Saint Luke's will explore other options for the Olathe and Shawnee buildings so they can continue to positively impact these communities. 

Saint Luke's Community Hospital locations in Leawood, Kansas City and Roseland Park will remain open.
