Avera Health announces biggest system expansion in history

In a major announcement, Avera Health in Sioux Falls has revealed its largest building project in history. The $245 million project will total 350,000 square feet and include two new structures that will enhance the healthcare services offered by the organization.

One of the key components of the project is a six-story tower addition to Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center. This will provide a centralized space for women’s and children’s acute care services, which will expand on existing offerings in these areas.

The second component of the project is a three-story structure that will be built on the Avera on Louise Health Campus to provide dedicated digestive health services. The existing space for this type of care will be repurposed to accommodate Avera’s growing orthopedic care services.

During a press conference held at the Avera Prairie Center, Avera President and CEO Jim Dover, along with Avera McKennan Regional President and CEO Dr. Ronald Place, shared details about the major project. They were joined by Dr. Katherine Wang and Jennifer Kirby who provided insights into the development.

This significant investment in enhancing healthcare services for the community marks an exciting milestone for Avera Health in Sioux Falls. Stay tuned for more updates as the project progresses.
