Sanford Innovations

Solving Problems and Helping Patients

Innovation at Sanford Health is about solving problems and making health care better.

Every innovation starts with an idea. At Sanford Health, we believe in pursuing every possible way we can improve.

And we know the best place to start is by listening to our employees, physicians and researchers because they’re on the front lines of health care. They each have a powerful perspective on the services we provide, the environment we work in and the hope we have for the future.

We are able to bring our ideas to reality by collaborating with people and organizations to solve challenges in the medical field and improve treatment methods.

Our mission is advancing health and healing through innovation, research and the commercialization of Sanford Health’s technologies to improve the human condition.
