Philip Health Services has been an amazing partner with Western Dakota Technical College. As the college began looking to expand its educational services into our rural communities, Philip Health Services was ready and willing to find ways to bring our services to their town. As a critical access healthcare facility, Philip truly understands the importance of rural healthcare in South Dakota. The staff at Philip Health Services feels acutely the incredible need for health care workers in our state, especially in our rural communities. They are dedicated to not only providing top notch health care to their community but in supporting individuals in pursuing health care careers to create a sustainable workforce for the future. A visit to the community of Philip truly highlights the way a small town can come together to find new and innovative ways to provide a solid future for their citizens and their healthcare workforce.

Through community support, clinical placements, and the promotion of our nursing programs, Philip Health Services has embraced the mission of Western Dakota Technical College and has proved that when there are strong advocates and a clear vision for the future, anything is possible. Western Dakota Tech is proud to work with Philip Health Services and looks forward to continuing to work with them as we achieve our goals of improving workforce development across Western South Dakota.
Congratulations to the 2023 Exceptional Business Partner, Philip Health Services.
