Regional Health invites the public to see the Black Hills’ newest health care campus, the Regional Health Orthopedic and Specialty Hospital, during its open house and grand opening celebration on Monday, Jan. 7, from 5 to 7 p.m.
Regional Health Orthopedic and Specialty Hospital, located in the Buffalo Crossing development at Catron Boulevard and U.S. Highway 16, houses a surgical hospital, specialty clinics, a physical therapy gym and the Sports Performance Institute Powered by EXOS.
The grand opening includes a 5:30 p.m. ribbon cutting ceremony. The NCAA National Championship Football Game will be aired on big-screen televisions beginning at 6 p.m . Throughout the two-hour open house, visitors will have a chance to enjoy light refreshments and take self-guided tours of Regional Health Orthopedic and Specialty Hospital.
The new healing environment will help meet the region’s growing need for orthopedic services. By 2025, a third of the people living in the three primary counties of the Black Hills will be 50 or older. And the total population here is predicted to rise by 10 percent over that same period.
Patients will have access to orthopedic and musculoskeletal care, sports medicine, pain control, rehabilitation and sports enhancement all at the same location. This will improve clinical efficiency for providers and result in increased clinical collaboration and shorter wait times for patients.
Rapid City Economic Development Partnership estimates that the hospital will directly add 177 jobs and $11.8 million in payroll to the Black Hills economy. As that money circulates through the community, the total impact could be more $17 million a year.
