Horizon Health Care, Inc. and allPOINTS Health Services merger complete

HOWARD – As of June 1, Horizon Health Care, Inc. (Horizon) and allPOINTS Health Services have successfully completed the previously announced merger that will expand Horizon’s network to include 31 medical and dental clinics across the state of South Dakota.
All located in southeastern South Dakota, Horizon will now operate: Alcester Community Health Center, Alcester Dental Clinic, Elk Point Community Health Center, and Yankton Community Health Center and Dental Services.
While the clinics will see a few visual changes outside with new logos and signage, patients can be assured that the providers and staff they have formed relationships with over the years will still be providing quality care.
“We are pleased with how smoothly the preparations for this merger went and are eager to continue building relationships in these communities that allPOINTS Health Services has created throughout the years,” said John Mengenhausen, Horizon Health Care, Inc. CEO. “We have a great team in our five newest Horizon locations and we will remain committed to serving our rural patients who deserve affordable health care.”
This merger will bring new opportunities to Horizon’s southeastern sites in years to come, including access to Horizon’s telemedicine capabilities. These telehealth services will provide patients with expanded access to services and communications with mental health professionals and specialty physicians, without having to leave their local clinics and travel long distances.
An open house and ribbon cutting celebration will be held in each location in mid-August to commemorate the merger and introduce Horizon Health Care to each of the communities.
For over 39 years, Horizon Health Care, Inc. has been providing personalized, affordable, high-quality medical, dental and mental health care through a rural, community-based network in South Dakota. Horizon is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) that serves the medical, dental and mental health care needs of South Dakotans in rural, medically underserved areas through 105,000 patient visits annually in 31 community health centers in: Aberdeen, Alcester, Bison, Bryant, De Smet, Eagle Butte, Elk Point, Faith, Fort Thompson, Howard, Huron, Isabel, La Plant, Lake Preston, Martin, McIntosh, Mission, Plankinton, Wessington Springs, White River, Woonsocket, and Yankton.
