Hilding Medical Library

St. Luke's Hilding Medical Library provides comprehensive research and medical information for health care professionals. The service is free to St. Luke's staff and affiliated professionals, who also have checkout privileges.

As an information resource, we maintain a basic reference library, extensive journal collection and access to contact information to reach physician, hospital and association resources outside of St. Luke's.

Hilding Medical Library materials are designed primarily for health care professionals. We offer a small collection of health materials for patients and families. If you would like to use the library, please contact Doreen Roberts, medical librarian.
