St Luke’s Hospital was founded in 1900 in the city of Nablus, which lies north of Jerusalem. USPG supports this hospital with an annual grant and has done so for over 20 years.

The hospital aims to provide medical care for all who are in need, regardless of race, religion, or financial status and also to serve almost 350,000 people living in the Northern area of Palestine, Nablus city and the villages in the surrounding area. It does all this as a contribution to the welfare of the Palestinian community, and not for commercial gain.

The Episcopal Church in Jerusalem and the Middle East has been a presence, and has been providing services in the Arab areas, for century and a half. It has established a range of service organisations in different fields in the region. At present, the Church has 38 different organisations in various cities in Palestine and the Middle East.

St Luke’s is constantly upgrading its facilities to ensure that it can keep on improving the services it offers. At the same time, it seeks to introduce new healthcare services that will comply with the different needs in the Palestinian region. The Episcopal Church in Jerusalem and the Middle East believes that the Christian healing ministry it offers via St Luke’s Hospital is a good way of helping people re-evaluate their lives and provide health care for all their medical needs. From 2016 to 2019, the hospital ran a programme of First Aid training sessions for school children in Nablus. The programme was conducted in four local schools, and 114 teenagers successfully completed the training sessions.

St Luke’s Hospital continues to serve the Palestinian community with the spirit of love and care, and USPG is proud to be part of that journey.
