Our Mission

The Avera McKennan Fitness Center strives to improve the health and fitness of the community by providing the highest quality facilities, professional staff, and programs in a unique, supportive environment.

Our History

Avera McKennan Fitness Center opened in December of 1997. However, the vision for its fulfillment was sketched and nurtured by Avera McKennan Hospital administration, board, and staff over many years prior. The primary purpose for this 57,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility and its 135 team members is to provide the highest quality medically based adult health and fitness environment to our community.

The programming and structure of the fitness center were designed to function within the continuum of care provided through the hospitals mission. The fitness center serves members who are working to regain their health and fitness as well as those who enjoy prime health and seek to maintain the physical, mental, and emotional balance that comes with optimal wellness and participation within community.

The fitness center is also home to McGreevy Clinic Southeast, Avera McKennan Outpatient Physical Therapy, and Avera Fertility Services.
