FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Dakotas-based Sanford Health has broken ground on a $60 million medical center in the Minnesota city of Thief River Falls.
The 137,000-square-foot facility will centralize care for patients, with clinic and hospital services on one campus. It will include a 25-bed hospital with emergency rooms. Construction is expected to be finished by fall 2014.
Sanford has been in Thief River Falls for five years and employs more than 540 people there, including 31 doctors.
Sanford is based in Fargo, N.D., and Sioux Falls, S.D. It has a presence in more than 100 communities in seven states.
