Avera renames Worthington clinic

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- The name of Avera Worthington Specialty Clinics changed to Avera Medical Group Worthington, effective April 1.

Avera is streamlining names throughout the region in an effort to ultimately help patients and visitors better identify Avera locations and medical specialties.

New names of Avera clinics in Sioux Falls and throughout the region reflect a growing emphasis on Avera Medical Group, an association of Avera physicians and mid-level providers.

New Avera clinic names in neighboring communities include Avera Medical Group Windom, Avera Medical Group Fulda and Avera Medical Group Lakefield.

Avera Medical Group is 545 members strong, with 130 locations in more than 50 communities throughout a five-state region.

New signs will soon reflect these changes at the local clinic and other Avera locations. The name of Avera's tertiary hospital in Sioux Falls, Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center, remains the same.
