Every #cancer diagnosis is devastating but none hits as hard as pancreatic cancer. Right now, pancreatic cancer has no cure but one Mitchell couple hopes their wedding bells could help ring in some much needed hope for the future of the disease.

With summer in full swing many parents, and kids for that matter, probably aren't thinking about the fall. But to fully participate in school activities, a sports physical needs to be done.

Spring is here which means the sun and warm weather are back. But the seasonal shift also can mean a return of itchy eyes and runny noses.

For Greg Docter getting a routine colonoscopy is no big deal. In fact to him, it's just as important as the other preventative screenings.

Nearly a half million Americans are currently on some form of dialysis, the mechanical filtering of your bloodstream. Some can do it at home but most require visits to the hospital or dialysis center.

Spraining your ankle or straining a muscle can be as frustrating as it is painful; especially for athletes. Time spent nursing an injury typically means time away from the game but now physical therapists have a tool that can help athletes rebound from injury and get back on the court.

June 18, 2014 is a day no one in Wessington Springs, SD will soon forget. The tornado damaged dozens of homes in town and the local hospital was no exception.

You can't see it or smell it, but if there's too much carbon monoxide in your home it could kill you. So the question is: do you have a working detector in your home? For one Mitchell family, their harrowing ordeal can be quite the teaching tool for others.

This past week has been a bitter reminder that it's still winter, but spring sports are right around the corner. So how do athletes get in that much needed practice? Well in Mitchell a building that once was used to show cattle is now helping to improve local athletes.

We work hard to bring our patients the latest in medical technology.
Introduction
When the Presentation Sisters established St. Joseph Hospital in 1906, at the request of Mitchell civic leaders, they brought with them a healing spirit and a commitment to minister to those in need.

Today, as Avera Queen of Peace Hospital, the facility has undergone many changes and improvements since its doors first opened, including four separate expansions. The union of St. Joseph Hospital and Methodist Hospital in 1991 to create Queen of Peace Hospital was an important step in this evolution. What began as a small, pioneering hospital on the prairie has become a comprehensive medical facility offering state-of-the-art technology and services. The consolidation of the two hospitals strengthened the goals of both -- to heal the sick and ease their suffering by offering the finest health care available, and to help people stay healthy.

A $15 million expansion completed in 1994 furthered our efforts to maintain a quality health care facility for the people of this region. A new Emergency Department, Operating Suites, Same Day Services Department, Diagnostic Imaging Department, Surgical Unit, Cardiopulmonary Services Department, and Laboratory were completed to upgrade services. Additional remodeling projects have enhanced our ability to provide patient care.

In 1998, Avera Health was formed; it is comprised of facilities owned by the Presentation Sisters, the Benedictine Sisters, physicians, and communities in a five-state area. Avera Queen of Peace Hospital is part of this large network dedicated to providing quality health care close to home. Although many changes have taken place over the years, the Sisters' healing spirit and the commitment to minister to those in need continue at Avera Queen of Peace Hospital.

A recent change is reflected in our name…Avera Queen of Peace Hospital, sponsored by the Benedictine and Presentation Sisters, is an Avera Health partner. Avera Queen of Peace Hospital is a 120-bed, acute care JCAHO-certified, regional medical center serving Mitchell, S.D. and a 15-county area.
