Innovative Partnership Builds Housing for Health Care Workers

Health care workers in Ketchum, Idaho, are turning down jobs because the area lacks affordable housing options. Current employees at St. Luke’s Wood River Hospital are also struggling to find housing, and some have resorted to living in RVs in the hospital’s parking lot. In response, St. Luke’s Health System and Arch, a nonprofit development organization, are working together to create more housing options. They recently broke ground on a project that will house a dozen health care workers and won’t require residents to pay more than 30 percent of their income on rent.
