Our Organization

On behalf of our dedicated employees and physicians, welcome to Prairie Lakes Healthcare System. Our compassionate team is committed to your care and wellbeing.

Prairie Lakes knows our community and understands the nature of healing. Just like the people who work and receive care here, we are independent. Our team cares for 90,000 people in a ten-county region of northeast South Dakota and western Minnesota. Because of our independence, we are enabled to collaborate with other hospitals and healthcare systems to deliver the best care here and throughout the region. Thank you for the opportunity to care for you and your family.
