Collaboration expands health services in northeast South Dakota
(Rosholt, SD) – Sanford Health is opening a clinic at 208 Prairie Avenue in Rosholt, SD. The clinic will be located in the Countryside Inn assisted living facility. This clinic will further develop Sanford’s network of primary care clinics in northeast South Dakota and enhance healthcare options available at Sanford Clinics between Wahpeton, ND and Wheaton, MN.
Services at the clinic will include acute and chronic care, phlebotomy and laboratory services with same day results in most cases. The clinic will be open Tuesdays and Fridays from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Patients can call (701) 642-7070 to schedule an appointment.
Rosholt native Lisa Braun, PA-C, is returning to her home town to practice as the primary care provider in Rosholt and will also practice at Sanford Clinic Wahpeton. Prior to joining Sanford, Braun practiced with Dr. Kass at Rosholt Care Center for six years. Braun has 20 years of acute and long term care nursing experience, including the Director of Nursing role at Rosholt Care Center. Braun earned her physician’s assistant degree at the University of North Dakota, Grand Forks, and currently resides in Rosholt.
Sanford’s commitment to ensuring access to care close to home is an important part of this move. It exemplifies Sanford’s goal of having patients travel no more than 45 minutes to receive primary care. This opening also allows access to additional services and specialists (Sanford Health has more than 800 doctors in 70 specialties), and advanced technology, including the patient electronic medical record. As a part of a larger health system, management and consulting services will improve efficiencies and increase the clinics purchasing power.
