Avera Health announces biggest system expansion in history

Avera Health in Sioux Falls has announced its largest building project in the organization’s history. The project will total 350,000 square feet and cost $245 million.

The addition of a six-story tower to Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center is at the heart of this major undertaking. This new space will house a centralized hub for women’s and children’s acute care services, expanding on the current offerings in these areas.

Another key aspect of this project involves the construction of a three-story structure on Avera’s Louise Health Campus. This new facility will provide dedicated digestive health services, with the existing space for this type of care being repurposed to accommodate Avera’s growing orthopedic care services.

Avera President and CEO Jim Dover, along with Avera McKennan Regional President and CEO Dr. Ronald Place, shared details of this significant investment during a press conference held at the Avera Prairie Center. During the event, Dr. Katherine Wang and Jennifer Kirby also provided insights into the project, emphasizing its importance in enhancing healthcare services for the community. Stay tuned for more updates as this project progresses.
