Message from our Regional President and CEO

doug ekerenAvera Sacred Heart has been a trusted health care leader in our region for more than a century. Ever mindful of our rich tradition of compassion, stewardship and hospitality, we continue to build for the future.

The world of health care is rapidly changing on an almost daily basis. At Avera Sacred Heart, we are ever vigilant to stay ahead of those changes by providing our physicians, staff and, most importantly, you, with the latest technology and medical advances available.

As you explore our website, I hope you have a chance to learn more about the services we provide, our commitment to providing you the latest medicine has to offer and our rich history dating back to the late 19th century. What began as a small group of Benedictine Sisters charged with caring for the community's sick and elderly has grown into a regional health care center that continues to build for the future.

God Bless,

Douglas R. Ekeren
Regional President and CEO
