Health Lives Here
At Sanford Health, we believe quality health care should be available close to home for everyone, everywhere.
From our roots in the Midwest, we are proud to set the standard for delivering world-class care. By building on the talents, experiences and beliefs of our employees, we aim to improve the lives of patients and residents throughout the diverse communities we serve. Through our shared commitment we can become the nation’s most connected, widest-reaching health care system, shrinking the distance between every patient and their best, healthiest life.
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.
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 https://www.sanfordhealth.org/initiatives.
Sanford is establishing a cutting-edge clinical initiative to create one of the world’s leading virtual hospitals. The state-of-the-art virtual hospital will deliver medical services to patients and long-term care residents across Sanford’s communities and beyond. 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.
Diversity Equity & Inclusion Commitment
Sanford has made great strides in our work with diversity, equity and inclusion over the last 20 years among employees and patients alike. We understand that as the organization continues to grow, so does our responsibility to our people and communities. We’ve significantly grown our diversity councils, employee resource groups and multilingual capabilities as well as advancing work focused on health disparities among certain populations.
