Mission Statement

South Dakota Urban Indian Health’s mission is to provide total quality medical care for Native American people and the economically disadvantaged residing in Urban areas of South Dakota. Care provided is not limited to just the medical needs but to provide holistic quality care for the entire family. Physical and mental healthcare are essential for a healthy society.


Patient Centered Medical Home

A Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a model of care where patients have a direct relationship with their provider, who coordinates a cooperative team of healthcare professionals, takes collective responsibility for the care provided to the patient and arranges for appropriate care with other qualified providers as needed.  Your care team is your medical provider, nurse, counselor, front-desk staff and YOU.  Your care team knows you and your family to give you the best care possible.
