Interested in the Results of our 2019 Community Interest Survey

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.
