St. Luke's Partnership

The Evolution of our Partnership!


In May 2015, St. Luke’s Miners Campus was awarded a three-year Rural Health Outreach grant from the Health Resource and Service Administration.  This grant was submitted with a Memorandum of Understanding Partnership Agreement between St. Luke’s Miners, Panther Valley School District and community partners.  Through this outreach, the School District becomes the hub of the community where there will be daily opportunities and outreach to connect students, families and community members to care and to work together to improve health outcomes.

The collaborative, rural health outreach opportunities align with St. Luke’s Community Health where community partners and the school district (including students and families) work together in promoting healthy living initiatives, chronic disease prevention, connecting students and families to medical, dental, mental health, substance abuse prevention and programs, and leadership opportunities for any interested students and families.

In using the School District as a hub, students, staff and community members and partners are actively involved in assessing, implementing and evaluating initiatives and outreach through focus groups, committees and student leadership opportunities throughout the year.

Since 2015, this partnership has flourished, providing significant growth to the community health umbrella of initiatives and services provided to the Panther Valley Community!

Examples of the outreach have included:

Together, we can work to IMPROVE the health and wellness of our students and their families!
