TiAnn Boggs, is the Director of Rehab and the Speech Language Pathologist with Bowdle Healthcare Center. She grew up not far from this rural South Dakota Community and after attending college and working in another state she decided Bowdle was where she wanted to grow her career and family. “I doctored in a larger community before coming home, specifically with pediatricians. The healthcare professionals there were specialized, and they cared about their patients, but when they made an appointment for their patients to see another specialist that would be the end of it. Here at Bowdle Healthcare Center the providers fight to get their patients the best specialist provider and the best time slots. In our small community, providers follow up with their patient’s and ensure follow through with further care.” TiAnn Boggs, Dir. Rahab & Speech Language Pathologist.
Bowdle Healthcare Center has a mixture new and old staff members. “We have people that have been here their whole lives, and people who have moved here and have been recruited here. There is a mixture of new faces and old faces.” TiAnn Boggs, Dir. Rahab & Speech Language Pathologist Bowdle Healthcare Center

TiAnn says if you can’t get what you need in town you can order it. “Amazon comes here and so does Wal-Mart.
