What Our Patients Say
"They found a blockage in what they call the widow-maker. While I was laying in the hospital room, the TV screen came on and was connected to Avel eCare Emergency. The care I received within the first half hour probably made all the difference in the world for me. Without eCARE Emergency, I probably wouldn’t have made it. I know I wouldn’t be in the condition I am now. The quality of life in our small community is enhanced greatly with Avel eCare’s presence." –Neil
"I’ll never forget that beautiful June day when I almost lost my daughter after she’d been hit by a car. Avel eCare Emergency was wonderful. It took only a matter of seconds before someone was right there. Because of Avel Emergency my perception of rural medicine has changed – now I know we’re connected to every possible avenue when it comes to medical care. Avel Emergency makes it possible to live in small-town America and still have access to great services." –Ava and Heather
"If you don’t know about Avel eCare, you might think you’re better off living in a larger community. But I don’t know what else I would have needed [to treat my stroke]. Having access to Avel in our hospital in Parkston is a life-saving connection." –Jason
