Alzheimer Care

Our goal is to maintain the highest level of physical, psychosocial, emotional, and spiritual functioning for those with special needs related to Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia disorders.



Among cancers affecting both men and women, colorectal cancer - cancer of the colon or rectum - is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States.

The risk of developing colorectal cancer increases with advancing age. More than 90% of the cases occur in people aged 50 or older, yet a significant number of people still do not get screened. Sanford Health's professional staff makes every step of the process as comfortable as possible.

Colon cancer screenings are recommended starting at age 50 for those of average risk. Patients with a family history of colorectal cancer or polyps should contact their physicians as they may need to be screened at a younger age, and have follow-up exams at more frequent intervals.

Call Sanford Vermillion at 605-677-3700 to schedule your screening in Vermillion today.

Skin-to-Skin Bonding

Skin-to-Skin Bonding

At Sanford Vermillion, OB trained nursing staff are present at the time of delivery to provide immediate support and instruction for you and your baby. Skin-to-skin means your baby is placed belly down, directly on your chest right after birth. The first hours of snuggling skin-to-skin let you and your baby get to know life in the outside world.

Compared with babies who are swaddled or kept in a crib, skin-to-skin babies stay warmer and calmer, cry less and have better blood sugars.

Snuggling gives you and your baby the best start for breastfeeding. Keeping your baby skin-to-skin in the first few weeks makes it easy to know when to feed your baby, especially if they are a little sleepy.

This is an important time for fathers as well. If you are too fatigued or otherwise indisposed, the skin-to-skin experience between father and baby is equally as beneficial.
