Planning Groups

It takes a significant collaboration to create a facility like Sanford Fargo Medical Center. We appreciate the hard work and dedication provided by:

The above along with other valued and skilled local business partners, are creating an incredible landmark for 100 years to come. In addition to the architects and building experts, Sanford Health physicians, nurses, administration, support staff and community members are contributing their time to the design process.

Groups are thoroughly inspecting patient room layouts with the goal of rooms being standardized. This provides consistency in patient care as well as flexibility for the future. Mock patient rooms are also available to help the design groups ensure the patient rooms are being optimized.

Design groups are working to gather details for the needs of the interior rooms including equipment, supplies, casework, outlets, doors, switches and technology.
