Sanford Aberdeen Medical Center celebrates five years

Public invited to free family-friendly celebration

Sanford Aberdeen Medical Center will celebrate its anniversary, marking five years since the hospital opened its doors to patients from across the region.

As a full-service regional hospital, Sanford Aberdeen Medical Center was designed to meet the growing health care needs of the region, featuring state-of-the-art technology and warm, welcoming patient areas. The 48-bed medical center is directly attached to the multi-specialty Sanford Aberdeen Clinic, providing easy access for patients and their families.

Over the last five years, Sanford Aberdeen has steadily added services to include new specialties. In addition to family medicine, Sanford Aberdeen offers pediatrics, orthopedics and sports medicine, interventional cardiology, OB/GYN, general surgery, internal medicine, radiology, nephrology, urology, ENT, oncology, podiatry, emergency medicine, and same day walk-in care.

Recently, Sanford Aberdeen became a verified level III trauma center, introduced a POWER sports training program for student athletes, became the official sports medicine provider for Aberdeen Public Schools and Northern State University, and expanded same day walk-in hours for easier patient access.

“It is inspiring to see how much Sanford Aberdeen has grown in such a short time, and to know that patients and their families have access to expert care, right here at home,” said Sanford Aberdeen Executive Director Ashley Erickson. “We have an incredible team, from our front-line staff to our medical providers, all working together to offer the best possible experience for our patients and their families.”

Sanford Aberdeen now has nearly 60 providers. As part of Sanford Health, patients also have access to an extended network of expert providers in 81 different specialty areas. Sanford Health providers regularly outreach to Aberdeen for vascular surgery, weight loss surgery, female pelvic medicine, reproductive endocrinology, and a variety of children’s specialties. Offering these services in Aberdeen allows patients to receive treatment closer to home.

“The community has embraced Sanford Aberdeen, and been so supportive of our efforts to provide patient-focused care,” said Erickson. “We are enthusiastic about the future as we continue to grow and move forward together.”

The community is invited to a special fifth birthday celebration on Tuesday, July 18 from 4-6 p.m. at Sanford Aberdeen Medical Center. This free open house will include root beer floats, inflatables, face painting and more.
