Avera Health unveils its largest expansion ever

In a press conference held at the Avera Prairie Center on Wednesday morning, Avera Health in Sioux Falls announced its largest building project in history, totaling 350,000 square feet and costing $245 million. The project will involve constructing a six-story tower addition to the Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center on Cliff Avenue, as well as a three-story structure on the Avera on Louise Health Campus at 69th Street and Louise Avenue.

The new space at the Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center will be dedicated to women’s and children’s acute care, providing a centralized location for these services. Meanwhile, the new building at the Avera on Louise Health Campus will be specifically 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 the details of this project during the press conference. This exciting development is still unfolding, so stay tuned for more updates on this significant project.
