Sanford Health investing in Vermillion facilities
VERMILLION (AP) — Dakotas-based Sanford Health plans to invest nearly $12 million in medical facilities in the South Dakota city of Vermillion over the next five years, in an agreement with the Dakota Hospital Foundation.
Sanford Vermillion Medical Center CEO Timothy Tracy says the plan includes tearing down the original hospital, which was built in 1935, along with two additions. The demolition will not include a newer hospital expansion completed in the early 1990s.
Tracy says a new outpatient facility is to be built on the spot. The Yankton Daily Press & Dakotans reports the project is being completed in five phases and should wrap up in fiscal 2018.
Sanford is investing $11.9 million in the project and the foundation $2 million.
Sanford is based in Sioux Falls and Fargo, N.D.
