Sanford Health officially opened its new Sanford Harrisburg Clinic, located near the corner of North Cliff Avenue and Willow Street in Harrisburg, South Dakota. The clinic is the first of its kind in the small, but growing community.
“Sanford Health has always made it a priority to invest in the communities it serves and provide our patients with the best possible care close to home,” said Andy Munce, vice president of operations at Sanford Health in Sioux Falls. “That’s exactly what we are doing in Harrisburg. We’re bringing what’s important to families to the fastest-growing community around Sioux Falls, which is care close to home.”
The 16,000-square-foot clinic features 26 clinical exam and procedure rooms, housing family medicine, pediatrics, women’s and behavioral health services. There will also be lab, radiology and ultrasound located inside the clinic. Mammography appointments will be available on days when the Edith Sanford mammography truck is located at the clinic.
Local care from local doctors
Megan Hegyi, D.O., a family medicine provider at the new Sanford Harrisburg Clinic, recently finished her residency in Sioux Falls. She’s looking forward to starting her new practice in a new community clinic.
“It is really exciting,” Dr. Hegyi said. “You know, everything is new. We’ve got a gorgeous facility. We’ve got a lot of great providers here. So I think there’s a lot of excitement among our team, but also in the community. I think this is something that the community has needed and hopefully residents of Harrisburg now will feel comfortable with a clinic close to their homes.”
Todd Sorensen, M.D., family medicine provider at Sanford Health, has worked at another Sanford clinic in Sioux Falls for the past 20 years. But his family lives and goes to school in Harrisburg, so he thought it was a great opportunity to move to the new clinic.
“I love it,” said Dr. Sorensen. “I love people coming to me and asking questions, interacting. I like being part of the family, because that in family practice, where we practice, family medicine is everybody. We just like taking care of everybody, answering questions, and it’s what I love to do.”
Sanford and Lewis: Together for good
Like many Sanford clinics in the Sioux Falls area, Sanford Harrisburg Clinic also features an attached Lewis Drug retail pharmacy for convenient prescription pickups for patients after their clinic visit.
“For many in Harrisburg, this clinic is just a mile or two away from their home,” said Dr. Joseph Segeleon, vice president and medical officer at Sanford Children’s. “This clinic will make it much closer and more convenient for those who live here. And with the convenience of Lewis Drug being attached to the clinic, you can easily have you or your child’s medications filled at the pharmacy, making your trip to the doctor’s office seamless and convenient.”
Construction of the clinic began in the spring of 2021 and is located at 111 N. Cliff Avenue in Harrisburg.
