STURGIS, S.D. – Regional Health HOME+ Home Medical Equipment held a grand opening for its new 3,600-square foot store on Aug. 17, according to the Rapid City Journal. The company originally occupied 700 square feet inside the Massa-Berry Clinic in Sturgis, but the clinic moved to Regional Health Sturgis Hospital. “They didn’t have room for us (in the new clinic),” Brittany Battista, manager, told the newspaper. “We wanted to stay in the community and wanted to broaden our retail and home modification (services), so this was a perfect location.” The larger space allows the company to demo chair and stair lifts, and wheelchair-accessible sinks and cupboards. It also accommodates an expanded display of connected home devices, home and bath safety equipment, roll-in showers, walk-in bathtubs, grab bars and wheelchair ramps. Regional Health is using the new location as a pilot for potential expansion in Rapid City and Spearfish, according to the newspaper.
