Sanford Mid-Dakota Medical Center in Chamberlain broke ground in October on what will be the newest nursing home in South Dakota since 2001. When completed in late 2010, the new Sanford Mid-Dakota Care Center will be the most modern facility in South Dakota.
The facility, attached to the west end of Sanford Hospital Mid-Dakota, will offer five different room configurations for 44 residents. Each wing will have its own home-like living and dining room area. There will also be a central activity area with a multi-purpose room for use as a theater, chapel or for other indoor activities. The new location on the hospital campus will also allow for more efficient medical services for both residents and staff.
The total investment of the project is more than $5 million, which includes nearly $850,000 raised locally through a capital campaign effort.
