Avera Medical Group Webster Closing July 25

In 2010, Avera St. Luke’s answered a request from the Webster community to establish a local clinic. Over the past four years, the clinic has struggled to build sustainable volumes for a full clinic operation. As a result, Avera Medical Group Webster will close permanently on Thursday, July 25, 2013.

A combination of factors has contributed to the decision to close the clinic. Continued cuts to Medicare reimbursement have made it necessary for all health care providers to look closely at operations and examine ways to reduce costs of high quality patient care. 

“We regret that we can no longer continue to offer services in Webster,” said Todd Forkel, Avera St. Luke’s President and CEO. “Our patients and the community of Webster remain very important to Avera St. Luke’s.  We will continue to find different ways to meet the health care needs for our patients and the Webster community.”
