Acquisition Offers Expanded Orthopedic Care

Sioux Falls Specialty Hospital is proud to announce that it has purchased Prairie States Surgical Center, an independent Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC) located at 2910 E. 26th Street in Sioux Falls.

Prior to the purchase, the facility was owned by the physicians at CORE Orthopedics.

“I’m looking forward to beginning this new venture with Sioux Falls Specialty Hospital and the opportunities it offers our team and our patients,” said Dr. Gregory Alvine. “We share a vision of consistently providing the best quality patient-centered surgical care in the region. That is why this partnership makes so much sense.”

Sioux Falls Specialty Hospital is committed to patient satisfaction and views this acquisition as another opportunity to provide the highest quality of orthopedic and surgical care to every patient, every day.

According to Dr. Blake Curd, CEO, “Sioux Falls Specialty is Hospital is committed to continuing to provide our patients the most extraordinary care in the region. Patients want choice and options in their healthcare and the addition of Prairie States to our team will give them exactly that. Our 5-Star recognition is a reflection of our commitment to excellence and the highest level of satisfied patients. We are excited about the new options we will be able to make available for our patients.”

Sioux Falls Specialty Hospital and CORE Orthopedics look forward to a long and successful partnership benefiting their patients not in only Sioux Falls, but across the entire region.
