Sanford Health Initiatives

In February 2007, The Sanford Initiatives were introduced as a defining element of Sanford Health. These initiatives have been designed to enhance the health care capabilities of the organization, to establish a health research center recognized for translational discovery and cures, and to help build a world-class reputation. Since creation, these initiatives have expanded to include a number of new projects and programs. By integrating strategic partnerships, and working quickly to engage fortuitous opportunity, the rapid meeting of milestones is exemplary of Sanford Health's commitment to care and discovery.
