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.
What Makes Humans Happy – What Does the Science of Psychology say About How to Live a Happier Life
Laurie Santos, Ph.D. is a professor of psychology and cognitive science at Yale University and an expert on human cognition, its origins and the evolutionary biases that influence our life choices. Her renowned work focuses on how positive psychology can lead to a happy and fulfilling life. At Yale, Santos teaches a class titled “Psychology and the Good Life,” which is the university’s most popular class in over 316 years. She was named one of Popular Science magazine’s “Brilliant 10” and a Time magazine “Leading Campus Celebrity.” Her TED Talk has over a million views.
As we approach our 20 year anniversary, the St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation initiated a strategic planning effort to evaluate how philanthropy can best serve our community, given the changing healthcare environment, and our growing and diversified community. In the spring of 2019, the St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation invited 3000 community members to participate in a “Community Interest Survey”. St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation supporters, St. Luke’s Wood River Staff and patients were invited to take part. The information will be used by the St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation Board to guide our strategic planning process. We look forward to sharing more with you later this year.
