At Sanford Health, we are dedicated to providing high quality health care close to home for people in central and western North Dakota, eastern Montana and northern South Dakota. We are the largest, rural, not-for-profit health care system in the nation with more than 26,000 employees in 126 communities across nine states. Our footprint includes 39 hospitals, 225 clinics and 1,360 physicians in 81 specialty areas of medicine.
Our system is experiencing dynamic growth and development in conjunction with nearly a billion dollars in gifts from philanthropist Denny Sanford. These gifts are making possible the implementation of the several initiatives including global children's clinics in Ghana, Israel and Mexico, multiple research centers and finding a cure for type 1 diabetes and breast cancer.
