SICANGU LAKOTA OYATE— The Rosebud Sioux Tribal Council and administration met today at 1:00 p.m. for a special meeting of the Council in order to discuss yesterday’s decision to limit access to the emergency room at Rosebud Indian Health Service (IHS) hospital today.

Yesterday, at approximately 4:00 p.m., Rosebud Sioux Tribal leadership was provided with information that the Rosebud IHS hospital was going to “divert emergency services.” After a meeting with Ronald Cornelius, director for the Aberdeen Area Indian Health Service, the understanding of the elected officials was that the emergency room was going to be shut down.
