Thank You!

Join Dr. O’Brien for an inside peek at Sanford Medical Center’s newly remodeled laundry department which now contains South Dakota’s largest washing machine and state of the art folding machines.  The new tunnel washer is 40 feet long, eleven feet tall, cleans 150 lbs of laundry every 2 ½ minutes, washes 25,000 lbs in seven hours and the dryer can dry 300 lbs in 15 minutes.  Benefits of this expansion project includes reduction in work shifts, reduced work injuries, increased productivity, and water savings of over 12 million gallons a year (18 Olympic size swimming pools)!  Sanford Medical Center’s laundry department serves over 155 locations/departments in the region.
