Avera Medical Call Center

Your health needs don't always happen during clinic office hours. That's when you can count on Avera Medical Call Center, a free service that connects you with a registered nurse or other health professional. They will provide you with confidential answers to your health-related questions, and they are available 24 hours a day, year-round.

Professionals won't provide you a diagnosis over the phone, but they will get you accurate medical information. They also can help you decide if additional care at an emergency department or after-hours clinic is needed, or if necessary, they can connect you with an on-call provider.

If you think a situation is life threatening, call 911 or a local emergency service immediately.

Avera Medical Call Center is not a resource for medical emergencies.

Call 24/7

Call the Avera Medical Call Center at 877-282-8372 to speak to an Avera registered nurse.
