Tom Seyer is a business owner and serves as Chair for Avera St. Luke’s Board of Directors. “Avera St. Luke’s is a highly rated 5-star hospital, and there are very few of those around the country.” Tom Seyer, Business Owner, Avera St. Luke’s Board of Directors, Chair.

Those who call Aberdeen home are thankful for the low cost of living and lower taxes. “As you travel around the country you see that home prices and those homes like ones here in Aberdeen are significantly higher in other parts of the country and our taxes are low. We have no state income tax which is attractive to a lot of people.” Tom Seyer, Business Owner, Avera St. Luke’s Board of Directors, Chair.
“As a health care provider, you think about your next step and where it’s going to be. This decision isn’t just about the facility, but about the quality of life you will have and that your family is going to have. Health care is challenging, and you want a place that is mission based, that has an administration that understands the value of health care professionals. There is also something about a sunset in South Dakota and one of my favorite things about Aberdeen is watching the sunsets.” Tom Seyer, Business Owner, Avera St. Luke’s Board of Directors, Chair
