Avera is starting construction on a $16.5 million medical office building in Mitchell.
The 70,000-square-foot building will house many of Avera's specialized services. It might also eventually be home to Avera Queen of Peace Hospital.
Ground was broken Tuesday for the project. Construction is to begin later this month. The medical center is to open in early 2016.
Mayor Ken Tracy says the project is another indicator of Mitchell's growth.
