As one of the cornerstones of not only the University of South Dakota campus, but also of the regional health care industry, it is a critical component of enhancing research and improving health sciences and medical education in the state. State-of-the-art technology is deployed throughout the 156,000 square-foot building.

Funding for the $37 million project included $12.5 million from the Higher Education Facilities Fund, $12.5 million from Campaign South Dakota, $10.2 million from the federal government and $1.8 million from the state of South Dakota. Lead private gifts came from Avera Health, Monument Health and Sanford Health. The building was designed by Koch Hazard Architects of Sioux Falls.
