Sioux Falls, South Dakota-based Avera will receive $1 million per year for four years through the Rural Maternity and Obstetrics Management Strategies Program of the Health Resources and Services Administration. The grant aims to help increase access to obstetrics services and reduce the incidence of preterm labor, low birthweight babies and infant mortality in rural eastern South Dakota and surrounding tribal communities where there are significant barriers to obstetrics services and related care access. Avera will implement remote patient monitoring and telehealth and will coordinate between medical and social service aspects of obstetrics care.

Sioux Falls' Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center will collaborate on this work with health care facilities in Aberdeen, Mitchell, Pierre and Yankton, South Dakota. This grant program pairs with the previously awarded Health Resources and Services Administration's OB Primary Care Training and Enhancement – Community Prevention and Maternal Health Grant. That $2.3 million grant, which runs through June 2026, is for recruiting and retaining medical providers in rural locations and supporting them with obstetrics training.
