Our Vision

Avera Sacred Heart will be recognized as the preferred regional hospital and comprehensive health service network for southeast South Dakota and northeast Nebraska.

We will build for the future a model of excellence and integrity through our Catholic health care ministry, our people, services, quality and financial stewardship. 

We will collaborate with our region's communities, physicians and other health care providers in planning and delivering services.
