Avera Health announces biggest system expansion in history

Avera Health in Sioux Falls has announced its largest building project in history, worth $245 million and totaling 350,000 square feet. The project will see the addition of a six-story tower to Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center, which will house a centralized space for women’s and children’s acute care services. This expansion will enhance the current offerings in these areas.

Meanwhile, a three-story structure 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. Avera President and CEO Jim Dover, along with Avera McKennan Regional President and CEO Dr. Ronald Place, shared details of this major project during a press conference held at the Avera Prairie Center.

During the conference, Dr. Katherine Wang and Jennifer Kirby provided insights into the project, which marks a significant investment in enhancing healthcare services for the community. Stay tuned for more updates as the project progresses.
