Road Construction Notice
There is a large, ongoing road construction project near the Sanford Medical Center in Bemidji. The project includes adding a roundabout to the intersection of Highway 71 and Anne Street, which is the road immediately to the north of the campus.

Due to expected lane closures, delays and detours, patients and visitors to Sanford Health are encouraged to allow extra time to travel to appointments.

About Joe Lueken
Joe Lueken was a beloved husband, father, philanthropist, businessman and Bemidji advocate. At just 72 years old, Joe’s life was taken too soon by cancer. Our community remembers Joe best for his everyday acts of kindness, sense of humor, honesty and work ethic. His family agreed there was no way more fitting to celebrate and remember the local luminary than through this cancer center.
