What Our Clients and Patients Say

  • "If you don’t know about Avera eCARE, you might think you’re better off living in a larger community. But I don’t know what else I would have needed [to treat my stroke]. Having access to eCARE in our hospital in Parkston is a life-saving connection."


  • "They found a blockage in what they call the widow-maker. While I was laying in the hospital room, the TV screen came on and was connected to Avera eCARE Emergency. The care I received within the first half hour probably made all the difference in the world for me. Without eCARE Emergency, I probably wouldn’t have made it. I know I wouldn’t be in the condition I am now. The quality of life in our small community is enhanced greatly with Avera eCARE’s presence."


  • "I’m so grateful for [the care I received for a hemorrhage during pregnancy]. We live an hour and twenty minutes away from Aberdeen, so knowing that Avera eCARE Emergency and CareFlight are available for any kind of emergency is absolutely relieving. If it wasn’t for eCARE Emergency, Avera CareFlight and the ER and OR crews at Avera, I wouldn’t be able to celebrate my beautiful daughter’s life with her. And we’re both here and healthy and happy."

    Sherrece and Trinity

  • "I’ll never forget that beautiful June day when I almost lost my daughter after she’d been hit by a car. Avera eCARE Emergency was wonderful. It took only a matter of seconds before someone was right there. Because of eCARE Emergency my perception of rural medicine has changed – now I know we’re connected to every possible avenue when it comes to medical care. eCARE Emergency makes it possible to live in small-town America and still have access to great services."
