ROSEBUD HOSPITAL 

A 35 bed comprehensive medical/surgical hospital located in Rosebud, South Dakota, with active obstetric and pediatric departments, the Rosebud IHS Hospital offers a full range of services, including dental, vision, and 24 hour ambulance services. The hospital and several field clinics are staffed by 11 physicians, nurse/midwives, and physician assistants. An optical department and dental care are also offered. The hospital is the primary source of health care for the Rosebud Sioux people, who reside across 20 communities, some of which lie outside the boundaries of the Reservation.

The Rosebud Indian Reservation has large areas of Ponderosa Pine forest scattered in its grasslands; and deep valleys are defined by steep hills and ravines, often with lakes dotting the deeper valleys. The Rosebud Sioux Tribe, more properly known as Sicangu Lakota Oyate, historically were warriors, hunters, and expert horsemen. Native plants and wildlife were very important to the Sicangu people and continue to be today.

City parks in Mission, White River, and Ghost Hawk Park in Crazy Horse Canyon offer rest and relaxation with camping and picnic facilities. Miles of rugged trails through the pine-covered hills and canyons of the reservation provide exceptional hiking. Enjoy an exciting rodeo or a colorful wacipi (powwow) or take in a weekend softball tournament or community celebration.

PINE RIDGE HOSPITAL

The 45-bed Pine Ridge Hospital, serving a Sioux Indian population of more than 17,000, is the largest in the Great Plains Area. A 16-physician staff sees medical, obstetrical, pediatric and surgical patients. The facility, located in Pine Ridge, SD, includes full-service general surgery, an obstetrical ward, and dental clinic. 

Oglala Lakota Tribal culture, part of the Greater Sioux Nation, still lives today on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, which is the second-largest reservation in the United States. The rugged terrain features wide-open prairies and the mystical Badlands of South Dakota. Visitors travel to the Wounded Knee massacre site or Red Cloud Heritage Center, which houses one of the largest and finest collections of Native American art and handicrafts in the United States.

At the southern end of the Badlands, the reservation is part of the mixed grass prairie, an ecological transition zone between the short-grass and tall-grass prairies; all are part of the Great Plains. A great variety of plant and animal life flourishes on and adjacent to the reservation, including the endangered black-footed ferret. The area is also important in the field of paleontology; it contains deposits of Pierre Shale formed on the seafloor of the Western Interior Seaway, evidence of the marine Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary, and one of the largest deposits of fossils of extinct mammals from the Oligocene epoch.

WINNEBAGO HOSPITAL 

The Winnebago Hospital (WBH) is licensed to be a 13-bed hospital unit that has over 250 IHS and Tribal employees. The service unit is unique because it houses both the IHS services as well as the Winnebago Tribal Health Services in the same building. 

The WBH is located in beautiful Winnebago, Nebraska, only 20 minutes south of Sioux City, Iowa. The hospital serves the Tribally-enrolled members in the tri-state area of Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota. The hospital is a one-hour drive from Omaha, Nebraska, which also has many Tribal members in need of health care services.

RAPID CITY INDIAN HOSPITAL

The Rapid City Service Unit (RCSU) hospital provides health care to Indian people in Rapid City, South Dakota and the surrounding area, and is unique because it is located in an urban area and not on a reservation. The 9 bed hospital has a staff of 22 physicians and 5 mid-level practitioners who provide inpatient and outpatient adult, pediatric and prenatal care.

Rapid City is the second largest city in South Dakota and is set against the eastern slope of the

Black Hills mountain range, which includes Mount Rushmore, the Crazy Horse Memorial, Custer State Park, and Wind Cave National Park.  Ellsworth AFB and Camp Rapid, a US Army National Guard post, are both nearby.
