Here's a photo from Sept. 7 featuring a couple of the new hires.

The article, written by Dale Hustedt, Avera Holy Family Hospital Administrator, shares details about each of the hires. They are as follows:

Employers, such as Avera Holy Family Hospital, who can attract new talent to the area, retain current talent and convince talent that left to return home, are invaluable to our region.
