Three tribes are taking over the failing Sioux San hospital in Rapid City South Dakota from the Indian Health Service. The hospital had closed its emergency room and was placed on the “immediate jeopardy” list by CMS. After enduring years of substandard care, the tribes believe the best way forward is through a 638 contract under the Indian Self Determination Act. The Great Plains Tribal Chairman’s Health Board will head up the move with support from the Cheyenne River, Oglala and Rosebud Sioux tribes. But the process of moving from an IHS facility to a Tribal Health Provider (638) is complex and sometimes costly.
