Avera Health unveils its largest expansion ever

Avera Health’s $245 Million Expansion in Sioux Falls: A Game-Changer for Women’s, Children’s and Digestive Health Services

Avera Health in Sioux Falls is undertaking its largest building project ever, with a total area of 350,000 square feet and an estimated cost of $245 million. The announcement was made by system healthcare administrators at a press conference held at the Avera Prairie Center on Wednesday morning.

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

The second phase of the project will include building a three-story structure specifically for digestive health services on the Avera on Louise Health Campus at 69th Street and Louise Avenue. The current space for these services will be converted for orthopedic care as part of Avera’s expansion plan.

During the press conference, 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 exciting project with attendees. Although this development is still unfolding, more updates are expected in the near future on this significant undertaking by Avera Health in Sioux Falls.
