Sioux San Hospital to Focus on Urgent Care and Other Services to Improve Care Quality to Patients


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.

Your Sioux San Indian Hospital contacts for ACA are: Krista LaPointe 605-355-2413 and Lynn Kingi 605-355-2455
