St. Michael’s Hospital Avera originated in 1949 in the Dr. H. Klima home.

St. Michael’s Hospital Avera has been a Catholic institution since 1949, shortly after its beginning. The Catholic identity, initiated by the Benedictine Sisters, is now derived from a relationship with the Sioux Falls Catholic Diocese.
