As the demand for health care continues to rise in central and western North Dakota, Sanford Health in Bismarck continues to invest to meet the increased need.
On Sept. 30, the health system opened up a new hospital unit inside its medical center. The new unit, on the main floor of the medical center, will add 14 beds, including six intensive care beds.
“An increasing number of people are coming to Sanford and trusting us for their care,” said Fred Fridley, vice president of operations at Sanford Health in Bismarck. “There is a need not only in central and western North Dakota but across the entire state for access to high quality health care. We’re committed to taking care of people and investing in the needs of those we serve.”
With the addition of the new unit, the Sanford Bismarck Medical Center will have a total of 242 hospital beds.
The new unit is located in the space that was formerly adult physical, occupational and speech therapies. All adult outpatient therapies have moved to Sanford East Interstate Ave Clinic, and all inpatient therapies have moved to a different area on the main floor of the medical center.
