If nursing is your passion, you need to be in a place that takes pride in patient care. Sanford Health offers the most comprehensive, advanced care of any medical center between Minneapolis and Seattle. Our entire organization represents quality and we are recognized for our Centers of Excellence:
From children with leukemia to adults with rare cancers, the cancer team – including highly skilled oncology nurses – sees a wide range of cases. While many people receive standard oncology treatment, some participate in clinical trials. Thanks to our collaboration with well-respected national research organizations, we offer more than 100 clinical trials for various types of cancer, giving patients access to the latest cancer fighting treatment available. Our cancer care includes on-site radiation therapy, infusion center, pharmacy, patient education and always, an approach that meets the needs of the whole person and their family.
Sanford Health's children's hospitals—one located in Fargo and one in Sioux Falls – feature neonatal intensive care, pediatric intensive care and mixed-age pediatric care. Working side-by-side with neonatologists, pediatricians and a wide range of pediatric subspecialists, nurses put their pediatric nursing, psychosocial and child-development skills to use in cases of all kinds. Individualized, family-centered care is the model of care for all children's clinics for outpatient care. Nurses enjoy a professionally challenging work environment supported by the latest in technology, research and supportive care.
Sanford Health stands out in cardiovascular care. For several years, we have been named one of the nation's top 100 cardiovascular hospitals. We offer state-of-the-art treatments, such as robotically-assisted heart surgery (this technology opens the door to minimally invasive heart surgery), bi-ventricular pacemakers and participation in research. We also offer a specialized cardiac rehab program and outpatient clinics for people with congestive heart failure, high cholesterol, heart-rhythm abnormalities and other conditions. From prevention to treatment to rehabilitation, the heart team offers a unique environment where caring and compassion truly team up with expert medical specialists.
Orthopedics & Sports Medicine
Sanford Health's orthopedics and sports medicine centers provide comprehensive care of the bones, muscles and joints. Our orthopedics team offers a wide range of surgical expertise and excellent post-surgical inpatient and outpatient care. Advanced therapy and treatments include sports medicine and hand surgery experts. Inpatient rehabilitation services complete a full continuum of care so, whether patients are trying to maintain their physical independence or they are a competitive athlete, we have the cutting edge medical care to keep them in the game.
Sanford Health's dedication to women's care covers a broad spectrum of services from pregnancy and childbirth to breast and bone health, pelvic medicine and fertility. We also offer maternal-fetal care specialists who provide advanced care and support for patients experiencing high-risk pregnancies. We combine our passion for innovation with the latest technology – creating an environment of compassionate, patient-focused care for women and their families.
Additional specialty nursing opportunities
Sanford Health's neuroscience center continues to lead the region in offering up-to-date neurological and neurosurgical care to adults and children. Like other surgeries, neurosurgery is moving toward a minimally invasive approach—Sanford Health's neuroscience is progressing in that direction with advanced technology and highly skilled specialists. Our neuroscience team continues to build comprehensive programs around specific diagnoses such as MS, stroke, Parkinson's, headaches and other neuromuscular conditions. The quality of our inpatient rehabilitation services complements our neuroscience expertise ensuring our patients receive the highest level of care to help them regain self-sufficiency.
Emergency, level II trauma and critical care
Sanford Health emergency and critical care services care for a wide range of trauma patients, many who arrive via Sanford Health's LifeFlight air ambulance. Specially trained crews, including flight nurses, transport trauma victims from throughout the region. Our critical care nurses care for the most critically ill and injured when they arrive. With trauma teams in place, operating rooms staffed 24-hours a day, critical care specialists available and highly skilled nurses supporting all these efforts, patients in life-threatening situations receive the best possible chance for recovery.
