Sanford Health in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, broke ground on the Sanford Virtual Care Center, a 60,000-square-foot facility that will serve as a hub for a network of virtual clinics and telehealth services.
Construction will begin immediately, with an anticipated opening date in 2024.
The Sanford Virtual Care Center will feature dedicated clinician workspaces equipped with telemedicine technology to offer a variety of service lines, including on-demand urgent care, behavioral health care and primary care. The building will also house innovation, education and research initiatives to advance digital health care and workforce solutions.
In addition to the Sanford Virtual Care Center, five pilot satellite clinics will be placed where services are otherwise unavailable or diminishing, allowing high-tech, high-touch connectivity with Sanford clinicians.
