HRMC Physicians Clinic Offers Care for the Whole Family

July 10, 2014

Huron, S.D. – Huron’s newest medical clinic, which opened July 8, provides state-of-the-art medical services for the whole family, according to David Dick, president and CEO for Huron Regional Medical Center

HRMC broke ground in March 2012 on the new 24,000-square-foot clinic building, which is designed to house up to 10 HRMC physicians, as well as laboratory, EKG and X-ray services.

HRMC’s newest physicians, Dr. John Robert, a board-certified general surgeon, Dr. Jesse Van Heukelom, a board-certified pediatrician, and Dr. Travis Lehman, an internist, who recently completed his residency in Joplin, Missouri, are the first physicians to move into the new clinic.

“When the board of directors decided to invest in this clinic, they made a conscious decision to build for Huron’s future medical needs,” explained Dick. “While we are actively recruiting orthopedics and dermatology to move into the new clinic space, we anticipate it will be several years before the building is filled to capacity.”

HRMC has agreements with several medical students and residents to return to Huron to practice medicine over the next decade. The HRMC Physicians Clinic will house some of these students, as well as other physicians who will be recruited to replace physicians who are anticipated to retire over the next 10 to 15 years.

All three physicians are accepting new patients and no referrals are necessary. Appointments can be made by calling 605-353-7660. The clinic is located south of the hospital at 534 Oregon Avenue. Details are online at
