On June 14, 2014 Prairie Lakes Healthcare System held the 18th Annual Hospital Hill Run. Approximately 150 runners and walkers participated to raise money for the Prairie Lakes Caring Club House, a service of the Prairie Lakes Healthcare Foundation. Two thousand dollars was generously donated to the Caring Club House, located in Watertown, SD. 

The Prairie Lakes Caring Club House exists to meet the hospitality needs of out-of-town patients, families, and caregivers that receive services at Prairie Lakes Healthcare System. As Prairie Lakes grows as a regional medical center more people come to Watertown for medical care. As part of our mission to provide compassionate care, we are proud to offer his special home to help ease the burdens families and caregivers may face during their medical experience. Volunteers assist guests daily at the Caring Club House; nearly 1,000 guests were served last year.

Funded and furnished completely through community support and donations, the Caring Club House is a not-for-profit, community-based project of the Prairie Lakes Healthcare Foundation, with support from Prairie Lakes Healthcare System.  Annual operating costs of the Caring Club House are $17,000. All contributions of time, materials, and monetary donations are welcome and extremely appreciated. Gifts are tax deductible.
