SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Two health care giants based in Sioux Falls say they plan to create hundreds of jobs in the region this year.

Avera and Sanford Health each expect to fill up to 350 positions in Sioux Falls, in addition to other hires to cover employee turnover. The Argus Leader reports that the new jobs range from research to nursing to computer technology.

Both systems expect growth in their regional systems to match the expansion in Sioux Falls. For example, Sanford is recruiting for 250 jobs next year at its new hospital in Aberdeen, and for 100 registered nurse slots in Fargo.
