St. Luke’s opened a new hospital near Costco in Nampa in October and is considering also building a new cancer treatment center.

NAMPA — Several organizations in Canyon County received financial grants from St. Luke’s Health System, according to a press release.

Nearly 20 organizations in Nampa and Caldwell were given $81,000 in funding as part of St. Luke’s annual Community Health Improvement Fund grants for 2018. The grants will support a variety of health-related programs and events, including after-school activities for youth and increased access to domestic violence services.

St. Luke's Community Health Improvement Fund grants are highly competitive, with more than 130 nonprofit applicants this year. Nearly 90 nonprofit organizations across the Treasure Valley received grants this year, as St. Luke’s Health System invested more than $550,000 in Community Health Improvement Fund grants.

"We are pleased to support nonprofit organizations that help address health priorities identified in the Community Health Needs Assessment," said Paul Lodge, chair of the St. Luke’s West Treasure Valley Community Board. "It takes collaboration to make significant change in the health of the community. Clearly, we are better together."
