Waiting room music just got a whole lot better at Sanford Medical Center.
The waiting room at Sanford Health is now home to a grand player piano.
The piano was purchased for 20,000 dollars by the Sanford Auxiliary.
The Auxiliary raised the funds for the instrument through the hospitals coffee and gift shops.
Musicians throughout Bismarck have volunteered their time and musical talent.
The idea is to provide a soothing atmosphere to the visitors and workers of Sanford Health.
"You know patients, families, and visitors, they are under stress and music is calming, it has a calming effect. You know what goes on upstairs is very big business and when you come down here it will be like a little oasis." says Irene Wentz with Sanford Auxiliary
This new instrument is part of Sanford's 'Miracles of Music', a program designed to provide regular entertainment for Sanford patients and visitors.
