2017 Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence - Healthgrades

Rapid City Regional Hospital ranked in the top 5 percent of hospitals for risk-adjusted mortality and complication rates across at least 21 of 32 common conditions and procedures. Healthgrades measures mortality for conditions like stroke, heart attacks, and sepsis, an infection that progresses to become life threatening. Regional Health has been widely recognized for its sepsis care pathway, a protocol implemented in 2015 that has resulted in some 100 lives saved and has reduced the number of readmissions.
