Avera Health in Sioux Falls has announced its largest building project in history, totaling 350,000 square feet and costing $245 million. The project includes a six-story tower addition to Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center, which will house a centralized space for women’s and children’s acute care services.

In addition, 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.

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 the details of this major project. Dr. Katherine Wang and Jennifer Kirby also provided insights into the project, highlighting the significant investment in enhancing healthcare services for the community.

The expansion of women’s and children’s acute care services will enhance current offerings in these areas, providing patients with more comprehensive care options. The dedicated digestive health services facility on the Avera on Louise Health Campus will further expand Avera’s gastrointestinal capabilities and allow for more specialized treatment options for patients with digestive issues.

As construction begins, patients can expect some changes to existing facilities as space is repurposed to accommodate new services. However, rest assured that patient safety remains a top priority at all times during this transition period. Stay tuned for more updates as the project progresses and we continue to bring you the best possible healthcare solutions for our community.
