Winnebago Tribe takes over troubled hospital on reservation


The Associated Press - July 2, 2018

WINNEBAGO, Neb. - The Winnebago Tribe has taken over the management of a troubled hospital on its Native American reservation in northeastern Nebraska.

The Sioux City Journal reports that the Tribal Council officially took over management of the embattled hospital from Indian Health Services on Sunday. It will be renamed Twelve Clans Unity Hospital.

Tribal Councilwoman Victoria Kitcheyan says this will be a new beginning for the hospital.
The hospital will now be run by the same group that oversees all the tribes health clinics and other services.

The change comes more than two years after the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services terminated the hospital's Medicare contract after the Indian Health Service and hospital officials failed to correct serious quality-of-care deficiencies the agency had found.
