Guardian Angels Watching Over Us

Please consider supporting patients and families like us by making a gift in honor of a physician who has touched your life. We are forever grateful for your gifts and know first-hand how special it is to them to read your words of appreciation.

As National Doctors' Day approaches, we ask that you take a moment right now to make a gift to honor your doctor while supporting patients and families at Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center.

Your dollars are put to work immediately, strengthening our Gospel values and ensuring quality care is available to all in our community. Gifts to honor physicians will not be used to benefit them but rather to support patients and families.

Appreciating Hope and Healing

From routine check-ups to early detection of a serious illness, your physician is there for you. Often times, you develop a close relationship with your doctor and trust them to guide you to make the right decisions for the health of you and your family.

For the Horstmeyers, they have entrusted Avera physicians with the health of both their children. They share their story of appreciation in hopes that you make a gift to recognize a physician in honor of National Doctors' Day on March 30.

"My family is so grateful for the wonderful team of physicians who have been there for us throughout both journeys. When our son was born with multiple disabilities, we had the best doctors in the world caring for him throughout his short life.

In December 2014, my husband and I welcomed a new healthy baby girl and couldn't be happier. We named her Natalie, which means Christmas, because that was the day she was born.

Even though this experience is completely different than the path we walked with our son Sam, we couldn't be more grateful for the expertise of our physicians."

You can make a difference in the lives and health of the community when your support the healing ministry of Avera McKennan. Please give in honor of National Doctors' Day today!
