Community Memorial Hospital and Clinics Thriving in a Town of 600 People

​Community Memorial Hospital and Clinics (CMH) in Burke, South Dakota is thriving in a town of 600 people and they are looking for others to join their team. Those who live in the community and work at CMH say many people who visit the area are surprised at what the town and hospital have to offer. CMH is a community owned health system with a local board of directors. Mistie Drey, CEO of Community Memorial Hospital has called Burke home since she was a child. “People cannot believe what we have for a community the size of Burke and our facility. We are a 16-bed critical access bed hospital. We have two rural health clinics located in Burke and Bonesteel and we offer a wide variety of services.” Mistie Drey, CEO, Community Memorial Hospital

In addition to a hospital and clinic, CMH offers:

  •  physical, occupational, speech therapy
  •  cardiac rehab
  •  sleep studies
  •  out-patient services
  •  chemotherapy and more.

Amy Juracek is a Certified Nurse Practitioner with CMH. “This hospital and healthcare community is very central. It’s important to most everyone in town, but the reverse is also true.” Amy Juracek, CNP, Community Memorial Hospital

CMH has seen many upgrades in the past 5 years. “ Everything in the facility is new and modern, all the equipment is new, including a new CT machine in the past few weeks.” Mistie Drey, CEO, Community Memorial Hospital.

CMH is always looking for nurses:

  • Certified Nurses’ aides
  • Licensed Nurse Practitioners
  • Registered Nurses

“We have a competitive benefits package, we offer sign on bonuses, we offer recruitmentassistance. Everyone earns paid time off as they work and vacation time. Your hours are very flexible, which is a benefit. We always put family first. If there is an event you need to go to with your family, we will try to make it work. We make that a priory.” Mistie Drey, CEO, Community Memorial Hospital
