Patient satisfaction is key to the success of any health care facility. Because St. Luke's Rehabilitation Institute is committed to getting our patients back to the highest quality of life possible, we consistently measure patient satisfaction and outcomes.

Largest provider in Washington 

St. Luke's Rehabilitation Institute is committed to providing the highest quality of care to our patients. As the largest provider of medical rehabilitation services in the Northwest, St. Luke's provided inpatient care to 1,532 patients in 2012.  Why is it important that we are the largest provider of medical rehabilitation in Washington? To develop the expertise to provide exceptional care for very complex patients, it is imperative that health care providers are able to see a large volume of patients. Because our staff are providing care to such a large number of rehabilitation patients, we have more collaborative experience than anyone in the region.

Discharged for Success
Our goal is to return our patients to the most independent lifestyle possible. St. Luke's consistently discharges a larger number of people out to the community than the national average of other facilities.


Patient Focus Groups

St. Luke's conducts regular focus groups with past patients from all areas to get direct feedback on both areas of accomplishment and places to improve the facility. These focus groups consist of patients who have been discharged over 90 days prior as well as a family member.  If you are a past patient of St. Luke's and would like to participate in an upcoming focus group, please contact us.
