Avioli, Louis V.

  • Person
  • 1931-1999

A graduate of Princeton and Yale Universities, Louis V. Avioli came to St. Louis in 1966, to lead the Division of Endocrinology at Jewish Hospital, a smaller teaching facility compared to its "sister" Barnes Hospital. Dr. Avioli's research focused on the causes of bone loss in postmenopausal women and the elderly, and in these early and pioneering years, he contributed to clarify the role of vitamin D in regulating calcium metabolism.

With his early trainees, Drs. Stanley Birge, Lewis Chase, John Haddad and Theodore Hahn, Dr. Avioli discovered the importance of key vitamin D metabolites in regulating intestinal calcium absorption and bone mineralization; recognized the negative effects of antiepileptics, in particular barbiturates, on vitamin D metabolism; and established the first radio-competitive methods to measure 25-hydroxy vitamin D in the blood, an assay that became the mainstay diagnostic test for vitamin D status.

BJC HealthCare

  • Corporate body
  • 1993-

BJC HealthCare was borne of a need to establish an integrated, academically based, yet geographically diverse health care system. Barnes and Jewish Hospitals affiliated in March 1993 to establish BJI (Barnes-Jewish, Inc). One month later, Christian Health Services (CHS) affiliated and merged with BJI to form BJC Health System; Fred Brown became CEO of this new health care system. The next year, in 1994, St. Louis Children's Hospital joined BJC. Barnes and Jewish Hospitals officially merged in 1996 to become Barnes-Jewish Hospital, the largest hospital in Missouri. In 2000, BJC Health System changed its name to BJC HealthCare.

Prior to the merger, CHS was comprised of three area hospitals: Christian Northeast, Christian Northwest, and Alton Memorial Hospitals. Both Barnes and Jewish Hospitals were well-respected institutions that held established partnerships with the Washington University School of Medicine; this partnership has persisted since the formation of Barnes-Jewish Hospital.

In 2012, BJC HealthCare was comprised of 13 hospitals and offered over 80 outpatient-oriented services. BJC Home Care Services is the oldest home care west of the Mississippi; it has received the Overall Top Performer Award in home care from Professional Research Consultants. BJC's hospitals, particularly Barnes-Jewish, are consistently ranked as among the city's, state's, and nation's top hospitals by publications such as U.S. News & World Report, Consumer Report, and Thomson Reuters. BJC's flagship hospitals are Barnes-Jewish and St. Louis Children's Hospital.
