The Indian Porcupine Clinic

The Porcupine Clinic situated in the Pine Ridge Reservation is the first non-profit rural Native American health facility run with the support of the community.

It was founded in 1982 by a bunch of Lakota leaders committed for the well being of the tribe. Developing it with grants from donations, the Porcupine Clinic was officially opened in 1992.

Currently the clinic serves about 100 people per week and offers Primary Care services (GP, Cardiology, Nutrition, Paediatric), Health Education, Dentistry Program, Vaccination and Immunization, Maternal and Child health program, midwives program, Dialysis unit, and Pharmacy services.

With the help of the Seva Foundation, the clinic is set to expand further and continue providing quality healthcare services for the Native Americans.
