A new research headquarters for Sanford Health will open fall 2009. Sanford Health has purchased the Hutchinson Technology campus in northeast Sioux Falls. The campus includes a 300,000-square-foot building with clean manufacturing space that can quickly be transformed into research space. The campus will hold all of Sanford Research/USD, which includes 125 researchers and support staff.

“We still intend to develop our property at I-29 and 1-229 in Sioux Falls. As needed state and city infrastructure is added in this area, we will continue our plans for using the property for continued growth,” Dave Link, Executive Vice President with Sanford Health said. “Meanwhile, the Hutchinson Technology campus allows us to advance many of our research plans by at least three years. Most importantly, purchasing this campus allows our researchers to accelerate their discoveries, leading to more treatments and cures sooner.”

The 71-acre campus also includes 40 undeveloped acres, allowing Sanford Health room for expansion. Sanford Research/USD will begin relocating to the campus late 2009.
