SpiriTrust Lutheran has always played an important role in providing compassionate care and support to those we serve in our communities to ensure their well-being and help them achieve an optimal quality of life. As needs grew and shifted, we opened new programs, expanded our territory and partnered with others to offer a variety of care options in multiple settings.

LIFE includes many elements of the traditional health care system and is coordinated by an interdisciplinary team.
