Dear Friends,

For more than sixty years, Wagner Community Memorial Hospital - Avera has been the area’s leader in health care. Ever mindful of our rich tradition of health care, compassion, stewardship and hospitality, we still continue to build for the future.

The world of health care is rapidly changing on an almost daily basis. At Wagner Community Memorial Hospital - Avera, we are ever vigilant to stay ahead of those changes by providing our physicians, staff and, most importantly, you, with the latest technology and medical advances available.

As a non-profit hospital, we at Wagner Community Memorial Hospital - Avera reinvest our earnings into the community whether it be through new technology, community health and education, charity care or education and training for our staff. Our commitment to the communities we serve is tied to more than a half century of history and tradition and will continue to grow into the future.

As you explore our website, I hope you have a chance to learn more about the services we provide, our commitment to providing you the latest medicine has to offer and our rich history dating back to the early 20th century. What began as a small group of community leaders with a charge of caring for the community's sick and elderly, has grown into a premiere area health care center that continues to build for the future.
