Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center remains true to its founding mission. Spiritual Care plays a very active role in every decision that affects the hospital. Our approach, however, goes beyond religion to focus on the healing aspects of spirituality, based on deeply held trust, love, caring, compassion, and respect for well-being and life.
Our chaplains promote and respect patients' values and beliefs, encouraging a holistic approach to healthcare. You can ask for a chaplain to visit you anytime, day or night by calling 832-355-3258.
At Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center, we recognize all faiths and beliefs in our pastoral approach and believe all spiritual and religious rites and symbols represent positive energy, faith, and hope. This recognition drives the actions our pastoral care staff take every day.
Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center chaplains have specialized education to mobilize spiritual resources so that patients can cope more effectively. They can provide supportive spiritual care through empathetic listening, demonstrating an understand of a person's needs.

Estimate Your Health Care Costs
St. Luke's is committed to helping patients make informed decisions about their care. Our cost estimate tool helps you estimate your out-of-pocket costs for care. This tool provides cost estimates for at least 300 common medical services and procedures.
You can also download a list of our standard charges for these services.
While this tool can help you estimate some health care costs, it’s important to know that it only provides a partial estimate. The estimate includes the hospital’s charges and fees, but it does not include physician fees, such as charges for your emergency room physician, radiologist or anesthesiologist. In addition, your final cost may be higher or lower depending on many factors, including insurance coverage, the length of your stay in the hospital, health complications and recommended treatments ordered by your doctor.
For a more complete understanding of your financial responsibility, contact your insurance provider. You may also contact us to speak with a St. Luke's Health - Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center financial counselor and learn about financial assistance options you may be eligible for.
