In caring together for life, the Avera Marshall community is guided by these Gospel values:

  • Compassion: The compassion of Jesus, especially for the poor and the sick of body and spirit, shapes the manner in which health care is delivered by Avera's employees, physicians, administrators, volunteers and sponsors. Compassionate caring is expressed through sensitive listening and responding, understanding, support, patience and healing touch.
  • Hospitality: The encounters of Jesus with each person were typified by openness and mutuality. A welcoming presence, attentiveness to needs and a gracious manner seasoned with a sense of humor are expressions of hospitality in and by the Avera community.
  • Stewardship: Threaded through the mission of Jesus was the restoration of all the world to right relationships with its Creator. In that same spirit and mission, the members of Avera treat persons, organizational power and earth's resources with justice and responsibility. Respect, truth and integrity are foundational to right relationships among those who serve and those who are served.
