Who'd ever believe that a hospital would invest in a farm? Well that's exactly what St. Luke's decided to do in order to provide their patients with fresh organic produce. Studies show that if you have a high plant diet, you will be healthier. The hospital is taking a new approach to health by focusing on wellness rather than sickness. 

St. Luke’s University Health Network has partnered with the Rodale Institute to develop an organic produce farm located on the Anderson Camps. The farm will be used to provide locally grown organic produce throughout our network. Produce from the farm will be utilized in our network cafeterias and served to patients, employees, and visitors. Working with the Rodale Institute to develop the St. Luke’s Rodale Institute Organic Farm will allow St. Luke’s to continue providing patients with a holistic health care experience that creates a positive atmosphere for health and healing. By providing patients, visitors, and staff members with local grown organic produce, St. Luke’s is showing a commitment to the environment and promoting the health and well-being of our patients and the community. Excess produce will be sold to staff members and the community allowing these individuals to make healthy eating choices in their own homes, contributing to healthier lifestyles. The St. Luke’s Rodale Institute Organic Farm will allow the network to raise community awareness about the importance of healthy eating and the impact of food choices on overall health and well-being.
