In January 2012, the Eagle Butte Hospital in Eagle Butte, South Dakota, was replaced with a newly constructed alternative rural health center. This is a modern, technologically advanced facility with enough space and staff to provide an expanded level of health care services specifically designed to meet the needs of the Cheyenne River Service Unit population.
The new facility has an 8 bed acute care nursing unit, 2 bed low risk birthing unit, emergency room, expanded outpatient department, dental, community health department and a full array of ancillary (including mammography) and support services. Additionally, several tribally 638 operated programs are incorporated into the new facility.
The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe through a 638 contract with IHS, operates four satellite health stations which offer basic ambulatory services at Cherry Creek, Red Scaffold, Swiftbird, and Whitehorse.
