Community Benefit

Partnering with Our Communities

Sanford Health partners with our communities to bring health and healing to the people who live and work across our region.

As a non-for-profit organization, we make sure the benefits of health care reach the broad needs of our communities. Together, we partner with communities and other organizations to fulfill this mission.

Ensuring that all people have access to the health care they need is made possible, in part, through our Community Care Program. We offer discounted or free services to patients who meet eligibility requirements.
