As the leading health care system in western South Dakota, Regional Health serves diverse, growing communities with the very best health care.  As an integrated system of care, our purpose is to help patients and communities live well. To enable a focus on living well, Regional Health provides our caregivers with consistent leadership, current medical technology, quality health care environments, and innovative healing resources so we can consistently and confidently do our best work — no matter where we practice and throughout any region of the system.


The Regional Health Annual Report reflects our unwavering commitment to our community. As we travel to the previous fiscal year, we display the phenomenal impact our physicians and caregivers have throughout our markets, and our stewardship of the resources entrusted to us for the benefit of our patients and communities. The annual report provides accurate, timely, and transparent financial reporting and details our systemwide achievements.


Our communities continually inspire us to care for others outside the walls of our healing environments. At Regional Health, we demonstrate our purpose of helping patients and communities live well through our community stewardship efforts. Our resources, energy, and focus are dedicated to all the communities we serve throughout the Black Hills, and we consistently strive to collaborate and create partnerships that will enable us to improve health and well-being. 


Regional Health conducted Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) studies for its hospital communities in 2013 and 2015. Areas in these assessments vary by community to include Butte, Custer, Fall River, Haakon, Jackson, Lawrence, Meade, Pennington, and Shannon counties.

The Community Health Needs Assessment is a systematic, data-driven approach to determining the health status, behaviors and needs of residents in the Service Area of Regional Health. Subsequently, this information may be used to inform decisions and guide efforts to improve community health and wellness.
