To meet growing needs and actively shape the future of health care in Sioux Falls, S.D., Avera Health has embarked on the largest building project in Sioux Falls history: a new 82-acre specialty care campus. SES is providing a full range of engineering design services, from master planning and design through construction, for this campus focused on serving a diverse range of client needs through convenient high-end care, walkability, and easy accessibility for all community members. Specialties will include orthopedics, gastroenterology, rheumatology, and internal medicine.
Phase I of the project is comprised of a new 24-bed surgical hospital connected to a medical office building by a multi-story public commons. The hospital will be home to large, technologically advanced surgical suites with the latest in robotic surgical techniques. Support services will include physical therapy, lab, imaging, and pharmacy and biomedical equipment. To complete the revamped experience, the new commons space will invite the public to interact with the hospital through dining areas, a gift shop, a chapel, and various seating options.
