Buchanan Elementary

Recognizing the ongoing needs of a high risk and underserved population, RHCI acquired the school-based site at Buchanan Elementary School in Pierre, SD in October 2006, following the dissolution of the Eastside Neighborhood Center. Supported by staff from the nearby Oahe Valley Health Center and working in collaboration with school administrators and faculty, students benefit from health screenings, medication management, and acute illness and injury evaluation. Services at the school are limited to students in attendance and not available to the general public.


For emergencies, please call 911.

To schedule an appointment or receive services after-hours, please contact Oahe Valley Health Center  (605) 223-2200.  Calls made after-hours will be forwarded to our contracted nurse triage service, Call 4 Health.  A Registered Nurse will provide a one-on-one assessment to guide the caller to the appropriate level of care.
