Sanford Health Finalizes Merger With Bismarck-Based MedCenter One
Date posted - July 13, 2012
Bismarck, ND — The health system that runs the medical facilities in Sheldon, Boyden, George, Hartley, Hospers, Inwood, Orange City, Paullina, Rock Rapids, Sanborn, Sheldon, Spirit Lake, and many other area towns has completed the final steps necessary to move ahead with a merger with Bismarck, North Dakota-based Medcenter One.
Sanford Health had been Sioux Valley Health System for several years, changing it’s name to Sanford Health after a $400 million donation from businessman T. Denny Sanford in February, 2007. Sanford merged with Fargo-based MeritCare in November, 2009.
Now Medcenter One and Sanford Health have announced the details of their merger.
Medcenter One now will operate under the Sanford Health name, with the hospital transitioning to Sanford Medical Center Bismarck. All Medcenter One locations will continue to provide care, and all staff will remain. Medcenter One will transition to the Sanford Health name over the next year. Dr. Craig Lambrecht, president and CEO of Medcenter One, and other leaders will remain.
Sanford officials underscore that while this is the final step in the merger process, it is just the first step in the full integration of the two health systems. That process will continue over the next year.
