Struggling SD hospital faces insolvency
The South Dakota governor's office is brokering a deal to keep the doors open at Bennett County Hospital, an isolated critical-care facility on the Nebraska border that has been plagued by financial problems. But hospital administrators say the deal won't fix the underlying problems that have pushed the Martin facility into insolvency. The problem is twofold, hospital CEO George Minder said: Medicaid reimbursements from the state have dropped in recent years, and Indian Health Services refuses to reimburse the hospital for most treatment of tribal members.
