Avera St. Luke's Marketing & Public Relations

The Marketing and Public Relations Department develops and distributes information for the three divisions of Avera St. Luke's and acts as official spokesperson on behalf of our facilities. The three divisions are Avera St. Luke's Hospital; Long-Term Care, which includes Avera Mother Joseph Manor Retirement Community and Avera Eureka Health Care Center; and our Clinic Division.

Reporters and photographers who want to cover stories about any of our divisions, including interviews with medical personnel and patients, are asked to contact Avera St. Luke's Marketing and Public Relations Department in advance of the interview. Please call 605-622-5232 or 605-622-4092 to schedule on-site media visits or to request help in setting up interviews with medical center sources. We will do our best to help, within the restrictions of confidentiality, privacy and appropriateness.

During non-business hours, reporters may call 605-622-5232 and leave a message, and we will get back to you as soon as we can. If it is urgent, you may contact the administrator on-call through the hospital’s switchboard at 605-622-5000.

The Marketing and Public Relations Office is located in Avera St. Luke's Business Services Center at 524 Camelot Drive in Aberdeen, SD.
