Avera Health Unveils $245 Million Building Project to Expand Women’s and Children’s Healthcare Services in Sioux Falls

Avera Health unveils its largest expansion ever

Avera Health in Sioux Falls is set to embark on its largest building project in history, with a total of 350,000 square feet and an estimated cost of $245 million. System healthcare administrators made the announcement at a press conference held at the Avera Prairie Center on Wednesday morning.

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

In the second phase of the project, a three-story structure will be built on the Avera on Louise Health Campus at 69th Street and Louise Avenue. This new building will specifically focus on 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 of this exciting development during the press conference at the Avera Prairie Center. The construction is yet to begin, so stay tuned for more updates on this significant project as it unfolds.
