Avera Health unveils its largest expansion ever

In a major announcement, Avera Health in Sioux Falls has unveiled its largest building project in history. With a total area of 350,000 square feet and an estimated cost of $245 million, this project is set to transform healthcare services in the region.

The first phase of this ambitious project will involve the construction of a six-story tower addition to the Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center on Cliff Avenue. This new space will be dedicated entirely to women’s and children’s acute care, providing a centralized location for these vital services.

In addition to this, the second phase of the project will see the construction of a three-story structure on the Avera on Louise Health Campus at 69th Street and Louise Avenue. This new building will be specifically designed for digestive health services, while the current space for these services will be converted for orthopedic care as part of Avera’s expansion.

Avera President and CEO Jim Dover, along with Avera McKennan Regional President and CEO Dr. Ronald Place, Dr. Katherine Wang, and Jennifer Kirby shared details about this exciting development during a press conference held at the Avera Prairie Center on Wednesday morning. They emphasized that this project is still in its early stages and more updates are expected as it progresses.
