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.

Blending myth, science, and storytelling, Dr. Thomas shows audience members how to approach aging with the skill and enthusiasm it requires. Drawing on ancient wisdom and scientific breakthroughs, he challenges audience members to embrace the moments of life that offer the greatest risk, reward, and possibility.
"Aging can be reimagined as a vivid and enlivening process that presents us with extraordinary risks and rewards," Dr. Thomas says. He presented to a full house at the Church of the Big Wood as our Health & Wellbeing Speaker on Tuesday, September 13, 2016.
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.
