In July 2016, a new Oncology Infusion Center opened at St. Luke's Wood River thanks to community generosity.
Community generosity funded the much-needed St. Luke's Mental Health Clinic and a network of mental health professionals to serve our community.
Community philanthropy ensures that our ER is staffed with board-certified physicians 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Celebrate your caregiver with a gift in their honor.
We are thrilled to announce the community has given nearly $990,000 to help build and equip a new Infusion Center. In celebration of this remarkable achievement, St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony at the new St. Luke’s Wood River Infusion Center.
“Thanks to community generosity, we have doubled our capacity for care and brought cancer and other infusion treatments and oncology clinic services together in one location,” said E. Carlton “Buddy” Wilton, Jr., president of the SLWR Foundation.
Dr. Dan Fairman, Medical Director of Infusion Services at St. Luke’s Wood River, addressed staff, physicians and members of the community, stating that “This is really all about the patient having greater access to care and treatment close to home with loved ones by their side. The Center provides a healing environment from the skilled and caring nurses and physicians to the design elements carefully chosen to aid in comfort and healing.”
