Forbes names Sanford USD Medical Center among best employers

Sanford USD Medical Center has been named one of America’s Best-In-State Employers by Forbes for 2023. With more than 13,000 employees in the state of South Dakota, Sanford Health is one of the largest employers in the state.

Sanford USD Medical Center was identified based on an independent survey of employees in the U.S. working for companies employing more than 500 people. More than 2.1 million recommendations across the U.S. were gathered during the review process.

“Our people — the Sanford Family — are truly the best of the best,” said Paul Hanson, president and CEO of Sanford Health in Sioux Falls. “Our people and the teamwork they provide for our patients is what sets us apart from the rest. We value every employee and the work they do to better the lives of the patients we have the privilege to care for at our hospital. This recognition is a testament to our employees and their commitment to those we serve.”

The evaluation was made on a state-by-state basis based on three distinct criteria:

  • In-state indirect recommendations
  • National in-industry indirect recommendations
  • Direct recommendations

Earlier this year, Sanford USD Medical Center was given an “A” Leapfrog Safety Grade for the second year in a row, was nationally recognized with a 5-star CMS rating and named to Becker’s Healthcare list of “Great Hospitals in America.”
