About the Foundation

The Lewis-Clark Valley Healthcare (LCVH) Foundation was established by the Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden in agreement with Ascension Health and RCCH Healthcare Partners after the sale of St. Joseph Hospital. The LCVH Foundation administers a $25-million endowment that will benefit the health needs in the nine county region the hospital once served. Those counties are Clearwater, Idaho, Latah, Lewis and Nez Perce in northern Idaho; Asotin, Garfield and Whitman in southeastern Washington; and Wallowa in northeastern Oregon.
