SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – Avera McKennan Hospital says it has performed its 1,000th bone marrow, kidney or pancreas transplant at the Sioux Falls center.

The hospital’s kidney transplant program was established in 1993. The bone marrow transplant program was started in 1996, and pancreas transplant was added to the solid organ transplant program in 2003.

Avera Transplant Institute’s new expanded home for organ disease includes nephrology, liver disease, transplant and liver surgery and endocrinology services. Bone marrow transplant is housed in the Prairie Center.

Institute administrative director Beth Plahn says reaching 1,000 is a significant milestone.
