Black Hills Pediatrics and Neonatology, LLP was founded in November 1983 by three general pediatricians, Dr. Sam Mortimer, Dr. Donald Oliver, and Dr. Willis Sutliff. Since then, the clinic has expanded and currently has eight board-certified pediatricians; two board-certified neonatologists and one board eligible neonatologist; three certified nurse practitioners, and a certified physicians assistant on staff.
For our patients convenience, our clinic is staffed with a full service lab and x-ray department. We also have an echocardiography machine to perform echocardiograms for our pediatric cardiology patients.
Our physicians and staff recognize that your children are your most important priority, and that is why we are committed to providing you and your family with quality pediatric and adolescent healthcare.
In addition to addressing your child’s physical health, our physicians believe their behavior and development are just as important. The clinic has also introduced the Reach Out and Read Program, a national pediatric literacy program that promotes parent-child relationships, improves language skills, and accelerates the intellectual development of children by advancing their reading skills at an early age.
Black Hills Pediatrics and Neonatology, L.L.P., has been recognized by the American Academy of Family Physicians for participation as an Active Teacher in Family Medicine through the Rapid City Regional Family Practice Residency Program. They are also all active in teaching medical students from the Sanford School of Medicine of the University of South Dakota. Several of the pediatricians have had papers published and together they have decades of pediatric and adolescent healthcare experience.
On August 29, 2011, our office implemented our Electronic Health Record (EHR) sytem, eClinical Works. As of June 1, 2012, we activated our patient portal so that you may access certain areas of your child’s medical record. More on our patient portal can be found under the Patient Portal tab on our website.
