January 2021 brought us a shot of hope.

That was when vaccination against COVID-19 was well underway among our health care workers and had just become available to our first patients.

Since then, Sanford Health has celebrated more vaccinations, new treatments, resilient health care workers and healthy efforts in our hometowns. As President and CEO Bill Gassen put it, we’re “going to do right by our patients, by our people and by our communities.”

Here’s a look at how we brought those priorities to life in 2021.
