Regional Health Orthopedic & Specialty Hospital Now Open

Jan 07, 2019 05:36PM ● By Alyssa McGinnis
The new healing environment will help meet the region’s growing need for orthopedic services. By 2025, as many as a third of the people living in the three primary counties of the Black Hills will be 50 or older. And the total population here is predicted to jump by 10 percent over that same period.

Patients will have access to orthopedic and musculoskeletal care, sports medicine, pain management, rehabilitation and sports enhancement all at the same location. This will also improve clinical efficiency for providers and result in increased clinical collaboration and shorter wait times for patients.

The new campus will house a surgical hospital with four surgery suites and 10 inpatient rooms, specialty clinics, a physical therapy gym and the Sports Performance Institute powered by EXOS. Services and departments that will move to the new location include physiatry, podiatry, neurosurgery, orthopedics, sports medicine, weight management, wound care and outpatient rehabilitation services such as massage therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. Pain management will also move to the new hospital at a later date this year.
