The Rapid City Service Unit (RCSU) hospital provides health care to Indian people in Rapid City, South Dakota and the surrounding area, and is unique because it is located in an urban area and not on a reservation. The 9 bed hospital has a staff of 22 physicians and 5 mid-level practitioners (including vacancies) who provide inpatient and outpatient adult, pediatric and prenatal care.

The Affordable Care Act, also known as the health care law, was created to expand access to coverage, control health care costs, and improve health care quality and coordination. The ACA also includes permanent reauthorization of the Indian Health Care Improvement Act, which extends the current law and authorizes new programs and services within the Indian Health Service.

Our Values

Respect everyone in our care, our community, and our partnerships; and for each other.

Travel the path of integrity without looking back, for there is never a wrong time to do the right thing.

Promote compassion and understanding….people do not care how much we know until they know how much we care.

Exemplify the ultimate in ethical and moral behavior; honor Sioux San, our community and our families.

The RCSU also operates a 24-7 Emergency Department and various ancillary programs such as; Dental, Optometry, Laboratory, X-Ray, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, Audiology, Podiatry, Mammography and Dietetics just to name a few. Most major surgery and obstetrics, including complicated cases referred from other service units, are performed at Rapid City Regional Hospital. Outpatient psychiatric counseling and evaluations are also provided at RCSU.

Located in the beautiful Black Hills, this stunning region on the Wyoming-South Dakota border lures visitors with its winding canyons and wildly eroded 7000ft peaks. The region's name - the "Black Hills" comes from the dark Ponderosa pine covered slopes that the Lakota called "Paha Sapa". In the 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty, the Lakota were assured that the hills would be theirs for eternity, but the discovery of gold changed that and the Sioux were pushed out into smaller reservations on flatter land.

RCSU offers potential future employees incredible back-road drives, caves, bison herds, Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse monuments, outdoor activities (ballooning, cycling, rock climbing, boating, fishing, hiking, downhill skiing and panning for gold) and tons of tourist traps in between.
