Changes Made to Improve Sioux San Hospital, Says CEO

The acting CEO of the Sioux San Indian Hospital held a meeting with members of the Unified Tribal Health Board and various tribal leaders to explain what has been happening to fix quality-of-care problems at the hospital. As reported by the Rapid City Journal, the proposed demolition of some of the buildings around the campus by the Indian Health Service department to build a new hospital facility was also discussed and concerns addressed. The hospital has been under scrutiny after an patient complaint and the resulting investigation revealed numerous problems with Sioux San's emergency services as well as patient care.
