Our Community


Conveniently located in Mitchell, SD, Firesteel provides high-quality care from an award-winning team. Whether you need transitional care following a hospitalization or require long-term care because it’s no longer safe to stay at home, we offer a peaceful retreat and place of healing.

Because of our newly-completed renovations, we have one of the most advanced post-acute wings in the area. All our patient rooms will have their own shower and dining room. We will also have a state-of-the-art therapy wing. Additionally, we will begin offering outpatient therapy. Lastly, there will be a shared main area complete with a cozy fire place, pub and bistro, Internet cafe, chapel, beauty shop and theater.

Our Approach

Working closely with your physician, family and other healthcare providers, our team creates your individualized care program. Once you’re here, our medical director, primary physician and their teams visit frequently, assessing your current health status and adjusting your care plan as needed.

The nursing staff are excellent and very caring to my needs. I am really benefiting from therapy. They are great. I enjoy their activities, like bingo, and especially the outdoor excursions we get to go on in the community. Firesteel is a great place to live.

After my hip replacement surgery, I spent several weeks in rehab. All the employees in every department were helpful and caring. The physical and occupational therapy departments worked diligently to get me up on my feet to go back home. The food and snacks were very plentiful and varied.

Our mother suffered a stroke and didn’t have use of her right side. She entered Firesteel Healthcare Community and daily physical and occupational therapy were started. Three months following, she has regained the use of her right arm and is able to write again and feed herself. We can't say enough good things about this department. It has changed her life!

I came to Firesteel Healthcare Community in early May for rehab. I want to recognize the Social worker, Jennifer, as she was amazing to work with. I loved all the nursing staff as well. The Occupational therapy staff pushed me to get well and get back home. I enjoyed my time at Firesteel.
