Investing in Our Patient and Resident Care

Every day Sanford is improving the human condition one person at a time by providing exceptional care and investing time, energy, and resources into transforming and redefining what’s possible within the health care landscape. As one of the largest health systems in the nation, we have a responsibility to continually elevate our level of care in our mission of sharing God’s love through the work of health, healing, and comfort. Below are a few examples showcasing how we do this.

Creating an Exceptional Patient Experience

At Sanford, our goal is to provide the highest quality care with an experience that leaves patients and residents confident in their decision to choose us for their needs. To do this we continually innovate, prepare, and train our staff at every touchpoint to deliver a higher level of service and exceptional care. Over the past few years, we’ve executed initiatives surrounding unifying our patient experience, standardizing leader rounding, and providing customer service and empathy training.

Sanford Initiatives

One major differentiator in health care is the Sanford Initiatives. These projects are designed to innovate and enhance Sanford's health care capabilities and share our expertise with the patients, residents, and communities we serve. Some of our key initiatives focus on research, children’s health, sports medicine, weight loss, genetics, breast cancer and more. You can learn more about all of our initiatives by visiting

The initiative will transform the health care experience for those living in rural areas, bringing affordable, comprehensive and seamless medical care to people no matter where they call home.
