Aberdeen Healthcare Getting Attention

Aberdeen Healthcare Getting Attention

Healthcare in Aberdeen is getting attention from US Senators today.

Senator Tim Johnson toured and met with officials from a community health center today. The center opened in January and charges on a staggered scale, based on what people can pay.

Johnson says centers like this are still needed even with the affordable care act.

“They tell me that Huron and Aberdeen are doing very well and I hope that they continue to pick up the slack,” Senator Johnson said.

Senator John Thune toured a cancer center in Aberdeen and learned about plans to build a new 26-thousand square foot center. It would include more personnel and new technology.

“It's going to have I think a tremendous regional impact. I think it'll impact a lot of people's lives here, provide treatment and cancer care to people throughout the region,” Senator Thune said.

Officials plan to break ground on the new facility this summer.
