Nursing Care

Nursing Care is provided at our North Canton and Portage Lakes campuses. Both are fully licensed by the State of Ohio and are Medicare and Medicaid certified. St. Luke - North Canton has 202 nursing beds. St. Luke - Portage Lakes can accommodate 56.

Registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and state-tested nursing assistants make up the nursing care team.

An interdisciplinary team works with the nursing staff to coordinate specialized care as prescribed by your physician.
