Sioux Valley Memorial Hospital, has been providing health care services to the area since 1916. Due to an increased need for health care throughout the last 100+ years, SVMH has continued to expand, including an addition in 1951, an additional building in 1965 and adding a third floor in 1967. In 1996, the $1.3 million True Medical Clinic was built to provide space for several physicians. The single story medical clinic has more than 12,000 square feet of exam rooms, offices and waiting area. Sioux Valley Medical Associates also opened clinic offices in Holstein (1996), Marcus (1996) and Aurelia (2001).
SVMH also recognized the need for a housing complex that would provide some amenities for seniors who would like to live an independent life minus the responsibilities of caring for a home. In 1999, The Beck opened its doors. Sioux Valley Memorial Hospital completed the health care circle when it opened the Wellness Center in October of 2002. This state-of-the-art facility provides a wide range of activities for people of all ages and exercise levels.
In 2005, Sioux Valley Memorial Hospital officially became Cherokee Regional Medical Center. Currently, CRMC serves residents of Cherokee County and the surrounding counties through a 25 bed critical access hospital; four regional clinics in Cherokee, Aurelia, Holstein and Marcus; senior housing, hospice, home health, public health, and wellness services. Cherokee Regional Medical Center continues to reexamine and renew itself in order to remain timely and true to its mission of providing quality healthcare services to the area.
That’s the Cherokee Regional Medical Center difference.
