Health Programs

Many programs at Prairie Lakes Healthcare System are free or inexpensive. There are several types of programs available to the community.

Emotional Support

Support groups offer information to help cope with a chronic disease or life event. But a big benefit of support groups is meeting people in a similar situation. Our staff guides the group on a particular topic. Most support groups are lead by Prairie Lakes staff, but we do support other groups who are independent. 

Prairie Lakes Support Groups:

  • Prairie Lakes Diabetes Support Group
  • Prairie Lakes Bereavement Support Groups
  • Look Good, Feel Better at Prairie Lakes Cancer Center
  • Prairie Lakes Breastfeeding Support Group
