Avera McKennan Emergency Department & Trauma Care
Experience, Efficiency, Technology
We've trimmed our door-to-doctor time to an average of just 20 minutes and have taken measures to reduce our patients' average length of stay to just under two hours.
Our Emergency Department, with its Level II Trauma Center, was designed with high-quality care, unparalleled efficiency and the latest technology in mind. ED physicians are residency-trained in Emergency Medicine - the only such team in the state.
It's everything Avera stands for. Experience. Efficiency. Technology. All ready within seconds, whenever you need it.
