Construction To Temporarily Affect Parking in Aberdeen

Construction ParkingAvera St. Luke's Hospital will begin some preliminary construction work on Monday, August 25, that will prepare for the building of the new Don & Carmen Meyer Center of Excellence and the home of the expanded Avera Cancer Institute to be located in the southeast section of the hospital campus.

During this 4-6 week phase of the project, parking for patients will be affected. The east parking lot off of Penn Street will be completely reconfigured. People coming to the east side of the hospital will still be able to use Doors # 1, 2, and 3 to enter the facility. There will be temporary parking areas for patients and families which were previously designated for other use. In addition, a shuttle service will be available to guide drivers to other lots as well as transport patients and family members as needed.

“ We apologize for the inconvenience during this phase of the project,” says Geoff Durst, Administration representative. “We are excited to begin this project that honors the Meyer legacy and will mean so much to so many people needing cancer services in the future.”

Employees and healthcare providers will be moving to other parking areas. “We want to thank our employees and Avera Medical Group providers for freeing up parking space for the benefit of our patients and families at this time,” continues Durst. “ We ask everyone to bear with us and we will do our best to make this temporary inconvenience go as smoothly as possible.”

After this phase is completed, the patient parking area will return to near normal as the construction of the new building commences.
