To help member facilities with workforce needs, SDAHO has launched the Hometown Healthcare Heroes campaign. The campaign is designed to recognize and celebrate member facilities, the people that work there and the communities they live in. Each month SDAHO will highlight a member facility and the job opportunities at that facility. In addition, community members share insight on the business environment, housing options, details about the school system, and some of the amenities within the town and surrounding area.
Dr. Mark Hagy is an orthopedic surgeon at Avera St. Mary’s Hospital in Pierre. Dr. Hagy has traveled the world serving patients as a healthcare provider, until settling down in Pierre in 2017. “It has been an absolute blessing to come to South Dakota, it has reinvigorated my life. If I could bring together my former colleagues where I’ve practiced before to talk about how you can take care of patients and really take care of them in a good way, I would bring them all to this setting without a doubt.”
Avera St. Mary’s Hospital has an array of medical and health services, including multiple areas of specialty care. This 60-bed regional hospital and related facilities in the only hospital of its size located within a radius of 112 miles.
