The new outreach specialty clinic at Brookings Health System is now complete. Patients will begin seeing outreach physicians in the new facility starting this week.

The new 2,000 square foot clinic is located on the east side of the hospital. It was remodeled from a portion of the former nursing home, Brookview Manor.

The clinic includes three exam rooms, a procedure room, office space for visiting physicians, and a waiting room and reception area.

Specialists hosted at the clinic will include those out-of-town physicians who formerly conducted regular outreach at the hospital’s emergency department. Because of the limited capacity to host outreach specialists in the emergency department, the new area will allow Brookings Health System to increase the number of specialists who establish outreach in Brookings.

Physicians who will conduct outreach at the new clinic include:

  • Dr. Greg DeSautel, The Dakota Clinic ENT and Sinus: call (800) 360-6161 or (605) 274-7440 for an appointment. No referral needed.
  • Dr. Laura Larsen, Midwest Ear, Nose and Throat: call (605) 336-3503 for an appointment. No referral needed.
  • Dr. Brian Brennan, Brennan Allergy Clinic: call (605) 696-8888 for an appointment. No referral needed.
