"We're very pleased to have such highly respected individuals join our Integrative Therapies team," said Mary Kay Foley, coordinator of the program. "Together with the skills of Dr. Thomas Archie, we are excited to bring this multi-disciplinary approach to healing to the patients at St. Luke's Wood River."


Melding traditional Western medicine with evidence-based alternative healing techniques, the Integrative Therapies program is designed to promote optimal health for body, mind and spirit, a news release from the hospital states. The new program will soon be available to all inpatients at St. Luke's Wood River.
