In 2016, a new Oncology Infusion Center will open 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.
Investing in the St. Luke's Wood River Foundation changes lives. To learn how your generosity impacts people in our community, read our Donor Impact Report.
St. Luke's Wood River Foundation is thrilled to announce the addition of 3D mammography in the St. Luke's Wood River Women's Imaging Center. This advanced technology can better detect abnormalities in breast tissue and better visualize the true shape, size, and location of an abnormality.
SLWR Women's Imaging Nurse, Barbara Wilkinson, said "before 3D Mammography, a questionable area in a 2D exam would immediately warrant a patient callback, even if there was ultimately no cause for concern.” With 3D mammography, there will be fewer diagnostic ultrasounds and biopsies, resulting in less anxiety, discomfort, and added costs for patients.
Having the most advanced technology helps inspire women to stay current with their screenings. St. Luke’s Health System Director of Breast Care Services, Renee Hawkins said, “Blaine County screening rate trends are higher than the national average with compliance rates at 82%—the highest compliance within the state of Idaho. This success in screening is a direct correlation to the support from the St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation.”
