Long Description:
Sioux Falls Hospital was started in 1894 by a group of group of Lutheran clergy and layman who were inspired by tales of marvelous progress in medicine at the 1893 Chicago Columbian Exposition. From name changes to moves, the hospital was built in its present location (which was at the outer edge of town at the time) starting with a drive to raise funds in 1927 and opened in 1930. A booklet describing the need for a larger hospital entitled "An Institution of Organized Caring" was distributed to explain the need for a modern facility.

In 1994, 1000 years after its modest beginnings, Sioux Valley Hospital was named one of America's 100 best-performing general acute care hospitals.
