WEST FARGO, N.D. – Plans for the Sanford West Fargo Clinic have been updated to include more space and a shorter construction timeline. The new plan calls for completion of the project in one phase, instead of two, and the clinic will now feature two stories, instead of one. It will still be built at the existing location of the current Sanford West Fargo Clinic on the corner of Sheyenne Street and 13th Ave. W.

“We know West Fargo is one of the fastest growing cities in the state, and we wanted to ensure our plans would meet the health care needs quickly and efficiently, while having the space we need now and in the future,” said Nate White, executive vice president of Sanford Health in Fargo.

The project will now span 26,000 square feet, approximately 5,000 square foot more than the original plan, with a total investment of $10 million, the same as the original cost.

“Not only are we achieving more space, but we’re also doing so in a cost-effective way due to efficiencies gained, including one construction phase, a better construction bid environment and stacking the clinic on two floors to reduce the footprint. As an added bonus, this plan gives us more parking,” said White.

Sanford still plans to add children’s (pediatrics) services and increase the number of doctors in family medicine and women’s (OB-GYN). When complete, it will be home to 18 doctors and about 40 staff as originally planned.

The existing clinic will remain open and continue to offer family medicine and women’s services throughout the construction process.

Construction will begin spring 2018 with an anticipated completion in fall 2019.
