Sanford Health is the largest, rural, not-for-profit, health care system in the Nation and the largest employer in the Dakotas.  Our family is 25,000 strong and our care stretches across 220,000 square miles.  The Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo area is a robust metropolitan community of nearly 230,000 and growing.  Offering the best of both worlds, the community is large enough to support many amenities of a large urban setting such as an international airport, community theater, symphony, three universities and a community college, a professional baseball team and a zoo, yet not so large as to generate the drawback such as high crime rate, traffic congestion, and pollution.  The area enjoys four season with low humidity making for pleasant spring, summer and autumn days.
