Why Sanford Health
Sanford Health and affiliate brands like Good Samaritan Society are excited to be on a journey of tremendous growth and momentum. As one of the largest not-for-profit health systems in the nation and the Dakota’s largest employer, we are dedicated to finding and developing the best and brightest talent to help our organization thrive. That’s why we’ve developed programs specifically to help grow and nurture our own employees.
The Aspire by Sanford team provides support, resources, and encouragement through personalized career coaching that helps prepare employees for career success. Their personalized sessions help guide employees to set new professional goals, navigate a change in career paths, or to strengthen their existing skills to find more fulfillment in their current work.
If employees are interested in furthering their college education, Sanford has a number of financial assistance programs to help employees achieve their educational goals. Students can apply for financial aid through one of our Scholarship programs to help fund their post-secondary education, or for select high-demand professions we’ve developed Sponsorship programs by partnering with local colleges to help support tuition and other expenses in exchange for a specified work commitment from the employee.
Sanford is continually looking for employees to work in key leadership roles. Our leaders help define culture, invest in staff progression, and shape the future of our organization. At Sanford we invest in our leaders by offering various programs related to leadership training, development, and continuing education.

At Sanford Health employee well-being matters. That’s why we continually invest in programs and partnerships that support our employees and their families inside and outside of work.
With “Community” and “Service” being several of our core values, we offer employees volunteer paid time off. This benefit provides an opportunity for paid time away from work to volunteer in our communities for a cause that is important to employees and demonstrates the understanding that we all play an important role in the health and healing of our communities.
With the impact of COVID-19 on healthcare employees especially, Sanford launched a host of free or discounted resources for employees and their family members. These well-being resources have helped numerous individuals thrive across their physical, emotional, spiritual, professional, financial, or social areas of life. For employees facing difficult and unpredictable circumstances, Sanford developed the Employee Crisis Fund to provide financial support. With “Family” as another core value, Sanford aims to help not only the patients we serve, but also the workers employed.
Within our Corporate Services and Administration roles, many departments are offering flexibility as it relates to schedules as well as potential for working remotely. Although in-office culture and collaboration is important, Sanford understands employees have other commitments and hobbies that require flexibility, and often make their own positive impact in the lives of those in our communities.
Sanford Health has a 125-year history of a hospital that started in Sioux Falls and has grown to include 46 hospitals and more than 200 Good Samaritan Society senior care locations across 26 states and 10 countries. Now, one of the largest health systems in the United States, we are on a journey of tremendous growth and momentum.
With a company of our size, employees can benefit from our tradition of offering an annual bonus during the holiday season and annual salary increases that we’re proud to say we’ve been able to offer for more than two consecutive decades.
We are honored to receive the various regional and national awards that reflect our mission of sharing God’s love through the work of health, healing and comfort, as well as the hard work our employees do every day to make it a reality.
Along with providing world-class patient care, the Sanford Initiatives have helped differentiate Sanford Health since 2007. Initiatives such as research, children's health, sports medicine, weight loss, genetics, breast cancer and others were designed to enhance Sanford's health care capabilities and share our expertise with the communities we serve.
