Our Healing Mission

Avera is a health ministry rooted in the Gospel. Our mission is to make a positive impact in the lives and health of persons and communities by providing quality services guided by Christian values.


In caring together for life, the Avera Health community is guided by the gospel values of compassion, hospitality and stewardship.


Compassionate caring is expressed through sensitive listening and responding, understanding, support, patience, and healing touch.
