About Our Hospital Facility
Coteau Health Care System is a 25-bed, critical access, acute care, community
non-profit hospital. We serve approximately 21,000 residents in the Glacial
Lakes Region in Northeast South Dakota as well as West Central Minnesota.
CDP Health Care System owns and operates the attached certified rural
health clinic in Sisseton; the Browns Valley Clinic in Browns Valley,
Minnesota; and the Rosholt Clinic in Rosholt, South Dakota.
The hospital opened in 1967, and in 1996, a 14,000 square foot new addition
and remodeling project—which cost $2.4 million—was completed.
In 2000, we also completed a $400,000 clinic expansion and remodeling
project. The latest project included a multimillion-dollar renovation
and expansion effort that took place in 2013. This 22,000 square-foot
addition was necessary in order to support a growing number of patient
visits, and included a new clinic, an emergency room, birthing suites,
a laboratory, and a radiology department.
At Coteau Health Care System, we are passionate about the work we do. We
believe in offering our patients individualized attention and care, emphasizing
their unique needs and treating them as individuals on a human level.
We have been successful in this goal, with patient satisfaction scores
ranking in the top 3% nationwide! Simply put, our mission is to provide:
Quality Care with a Personal Touch, Close to Home.
We exist to serve our community and we strive to be an integral part of
our community through strong and trusting relationships.
We respect all those we serve and those who serve with us, and we demonstrate
that respect in the way in which we care for and interact with those we
serve as well as with other members of the care team.
We (CDP) are a community asset and we are committed to being good stewards
of the resources that have been entrusted to us.
We seek to engage with our staff, providers and community to ensure that
everyone is invested in our organization. This engagement also demonstrates
how our organization is invested in the community we serve and how we
are working together to create a healthier community.
We are committed to increasing access to the services our community needs.
We are committed to improving the services we provide to ensure those we
serve are receiving the highest quality of care possible. We continuously
reach for new and innovative solutions to improve the health of those we serve.
