South Dakota's health is failing. The United Health Foundation ranks the state 27th for overall health. That's a big drop from its 19th place ranking in 2012, and its lowest ranking in the annual study's 23-year history. The low taxes imposed on cigarettes and alcohol in South Dakota go some way towards explaining the state's dismal ranking. Smoking and binge drinking are prevalent, especially among the state's Native American population.

Healthcare in South Dakota

People living on the state's reservations also struggle to get access to healthcare. South Dakota's urgent care centers look to bridge the gap between South Dakota's indigenous and white populations. However Native Americans aren't the only residents these low-cost clinics cater to.

Many South Dakota emergency departments see patients in order of the severity of their illnesses or injuries. If your condition isn't deemed serious enough, you may wait for many hours before seeing a doctor. You'll be attended to much more quickly in an urgent care center. The well-trained staff in these facilities can treat non-life threatening conditions much more rapidly than hospital emergency departments.
