A new chapel at St. Luke's Meridian Medical Center will offer a place for comfort, quiet reflection and spiritual care for patients, families and staff. Throughout the past four years, money for the chapel's construction was raised by St. Luke's staff, community members and philanthropic organizations.

All St. Luke's locations have chapels to address the spiritual needs of patients, families, and staff, but in 2010 Meridian's chapel space was reallocated for patient care when the facility faced challenges finding enough room to accommodate ever-growing patient needs. Although spiritual care continued without the chapel, a dedicated space was still lacking. In 2012 a group of staff members organized a committee and began a grassroots fundraising campaign to construct a new chapel. 

The chapel design, which incorporates images of Idaho’s striking landscape, is based on the principle that light and color can help heal, influencing our wellbeing, emotions and ability to cope, according to officials from Hartung Glass Industries.
