Avera Health announces biggest system expansion in history

Avera Health in Sioux Falls has unveiled its largest building project in history, a $245 million, 350,000 square feet expansion that includes a six-story tower addition to Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center. This centralized space will house women’s and children’s acute care services, expanding the current offerings in these areas.

In addition to the tower, 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 the details of this major project during a press conference held at the Avera Prairie Center. Dr. Katherine Wang and Jennifer Kirby also 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.
