SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Sanford Health has a $209 million plan to build two new clinics and an orthopedic hospital over the next three years.

The health care system announced Tuesday it’s plans include an orthopedic hospital at Sanford’s main campus in Sioux Falls that will have 12 operating rooms. Ground breaking is expected in the summer of 2021 with completion by 2023.

Sanford Heart Hospital is also undergoing a makeover this month, adding 16 additional patient rooms, the Argus Leader reported.

Sanford will also build its first clinic in the growing city of Harrisburg and a new clinic in Sioux Falls.

“For us this is getting the message out that we are going to enhance our existing service lines,” said Paul Hanson, CEO and President of Sanford Sioux Falls. “We see an opportunity where the community is growing.”

The projects are part of the health care system’s effort to provide more services to parts of the city and the surrounding area that are gaining thousands of new residents each year.
