Sanford Health Will Open "Super" Clinic In Dickinson

Posted:

Sanford Health continues to expand west in North Dakota.

With more people moving to the western part of the state, comes the need for more healthcare.

To help meet that need, today ground is broken on a new "super" clinic.

"When we became Sanford Health, there was a commitment to provide great quality access to healthcare in western North Dakota."

Sanford Health is no stranger to North Dakota.

This summer Sanford merged with MedCenter One, and today they break ground on a $20 million Super Clinic in Dickinson.

"We'll be able to have a walk in clinic, infusion center, ambulatory surgery center, allow specialists to come in from the outlying area and we'll just have more room to provide more care for more people," Craig Lambrecht with Sanford Health said.

More room is exactly what Emily Richard is looking forward to.

"Space, my CNA and I currently work in the end of our hallway, which is about four feet wide with no windows and both of our computers, so we're pretty cramped for space," Registered Nurse, Emily Richard said.

In addition to advanced health services, this new Sanford Super Clinic will also have flight services.

"I think helicopter services in Western North Dakota from an air medical standpoint are something that are going to be a reality," Lambrecht said.

Another reality is the growth occurring in Dickinson.

More people are moving to Dickinson and nearby communities, which means more healthcare services are needed.

"This is a big quality of life event for us, and when you think about all that's going on in the oil impact area, you've got to have healthcare services, just a lot more danger associated with that work," Mayor Dennis Johnson said.

Which is why this new clinic will be three times the size of the existing one.

The new clinic is expected to be complete by the summer of 2014.
