Quality Initiatives & Reporting at Avera

At Avera, providing quality care is our top priority. Avera embraces the philosophy of a just culture that encourages the development of systems that support delivery of excellent care to each and every patient. 
Avera emphasizes the importance of

  • Patient-centered care
  • Better, affordable care for healthy people and communities
  • Care across the lifespan and continuum
  • Elimination of health care disparities
  • Innovation, coordination and shared accountability

Avera continues to expand the quality and safety focus throughout the continuum of services, including our hospitals, primary care, outpatient specialty practices, home care and long-term care. As federal health care reform moves from legislation to practice, we draw from our many years of work in patient safety and the delivery of quality, evidence-based care to offer solutions  to today’s health care challenges that meet and exceed today’s demands for high-quality, safe and affordable care.

Avera has a rich history and valued partnerships that gives us the ability to provide care and services with compassion, hospitality and stewardship. This spirit is how Avera continues to lead in the delivery of quality health care services. Together we work to improve patient care in our communities, drive efficiencies and implement and share best practices throughout Avera facilities.

Moving Health Forward
