Avera means "to be well."
The most prominent element of the Avera logo is a cross, symbolizing the Christian heritage and mission of Avera's partners. The design elements below the cross can be interpreted as hands, open and lifted up as in prayer, or doves, a Christian symbol of peace and hope. Both the design and its color, a deep green, are intended to convey hope and renewal, qualities significant in Christian belief and also particularly relevant in our predominantly rural area of the country.
Avera is a health ministry rooted in the Gospel. Our mission is to make a positive impact in the lives and health of persons and communities by providing quality services guided by Christian values.
