Avera Eureka Health Care Center, sponsored by the Benedictine and Presentation Sisters, exists to serve our community by providing care and housing for older individuals or those with special needs. By holding to values of compassion, hospitality, and stewardship, we promote dignity, well-being and the highest level of functioning and independence for each individual we serve.
Avera Eureka Health Care Center, as a member of Avera Health, promotes the gospel values of COMPASSION, HOSPITALITY and STEWARDSHIP, as exemplified in the life of Nano Nagle, foundress of the Presentation Sisters, and St. Benedict.
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.
The encounters of Jesus with each person were typified by openness and mutuality. A welcoming presence, an attentiveness to needs,a gracious manner, seasoned with a sense of humor, are expressions of hospitality in and by the Avera Health community.
Threaded through the mission of Jesus was the restoration of all the world to right relationship with its Creator. In that same spirit and mission, the members of Avera Health 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.
