The Board of County Commissioners may choose at any time to provide Community Health Care Services.  The Perkins County Commissioners have chosen to contract with the State of South Dakota for these services.


The primary focus of the Perkins County Community Health Nurse is to provide preventative care and County also administers the WIC (Women, Infants & Children) program offered through the State of South Dakota.
