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.

For the health of our community, it’s important to recognize that depression, anxiety and other mental health conditions are treatable and can improve with professional support and guidance. Help for any mental health issue should be encouraged, and many resources are available in and around our community.
Fortunately, there are multiple resources available within our community to help us deal with stress and mental health conditions. The Center for Community Health, with support from the St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation, has recently published Get Help! a mental health resource guide for the Wood River Valley, which is available in English and Spanish.
