St. Luke's

St. Luke's first patient was admitted on July 14, 1954.  Ironically, even though the hospital was
built to fulfill Campbell County's need for it, the first patient, Mrs. Edward Shulte, was from
Kenton County. She gave birth to a son, whom she of course named Clifford Luke Shulte.

Christmas babies,
Lori Stegner Acuff tells us this is Christmas,
1967, and that's her twin brother Nick (right)
and sister Noel in the near row. Thanks, Lori.

Christmas Eve twins!


Fort Thomas, Kentucky

Notorious Newport Club Owner Frank “Screw” Andrews met his death on December 17, 1973,
 by going out a window at St. Luke.  Whether he was a suicide, and he jumped, or
whether he was pushed, depends on who you ask.  Ask us, and we'll say pushed.
