Health, Bio & Life Sciences

Sioux Falls is a hub for healthcare. Two of the top ranked hospital systems in the region, Avera Health and Sanford Health call Sioux Falls home. The hospital systems are supplemented by a variety of biotech and pharmaceutical companies, such as CIGNA, MedVantx, Inc. and SAB Biotherapeutics. This industry utilizes Sioux Falls’ location to enhance their workforce by attracting graduates from the USD Sanford School of Medicine and the SDSU School of Pharmacy. South Dakota’s tax-friendly climate, efficient transportation system and access to research funding give health, bio and life science companies in our region a leg up on the competition.
