Ketchum, Idaho (August 16, 2013) – St. Luke’s Wood River is not under threat from the surrounding fires at this time, but hospitals officials are being proactive by reducing  non-essential staff.

At this time, the ER is still fully functioning, all of St. Luke's core services remain open, and St. Luke's  not transferring any current inpatients due to the pre-evacuation orders issued. St. Luke's is still transferring patients on an emergent basis, as we normally would when they need specialized care not provided at St. Luke's Wood River.

The Hailey Clinic is able to take “urgent care” type patients and is open until 6 p.m. today and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. For patients that live in the South Valley, St. Luke's encourages you to utilize those services if possible. However, if you are experiencing chest pain, chest tightness, shortness of breath or extreme, sudden fatigue you should immediately come to the St. Luke's Wood River emergency department.
