The Indian Health Service is permanently closing the Sioux San Hospital’s emergency room and inpatient services.
IHS must report to Congress at least one year prior to the date they intend to close the facility.
In a press release, IHS says it will terminate emergency room and overnight, inpatient services by July of 2018.
IHS’s emergency room temporarily closed in September last year. Those seeking emergency room care were referred to the nearby Rapid City Regional Hospital. It never reopened.
