About St. Luke's Hospital
St. Luke’s Episcopal hospital in Houston is a part of the Baylor healthcare system. Opening its doors in 1954, St. Luke’s was named as one of America’s Best Hospitals by U.S. News & World Report. With outstanding facilities, convenient locations, and a trained staff of nurses and medical practitioners, St. Luke’s has made headlines since the beginning. In addition to outpatient surgery, St Luke’s was the first hospital in Houston to successfully undertake heart transplantation surgery, as well as the first laser angioplasty procedure. Advances in medicine are why Dr. Lapuerta makes certain he maintains privileges at St. Luke’s. For more information on St. Luke's, visit http://www.stlukestexas.com.
