Edith Sanford Breast Center To Be Built On Sanford Health Campus

Edith Sanford Breast Center To Be Built On Sanford Health Campus

A new building is going up on the Sanford Health campus this fall. Sanford Health will break ground on the new Edith Sanford Breast Center that will take nearly two years to build.  

The Edith Sanford Breast Center will combine both research and clinical care for breast health. The $30 million, 48,000-square-foot, three story building will be located on 18th street and connected to the current Sanford Cancer Center and VanDemark Building.

Portions of the Sanford Cancer Center and VanDemark Building will also be renovated.

Edith Sanford Breast Center services will include mammography, a breast cancer risk assessment program, a high-risk breast clinic, a breast surgery clinic, genetic counseling, a boutique offering medical and retail support for cancer patients, a multi-disciplinary conference center and clinic and a survivorship clinic.

“As our patient and family requests and needs continue to grow, it is important we explore methods to take advantage of innovations and advances in cancer care,” said Paul Hanson, president of Sanford USD Medical Center.  “The Edith Sanford Breast Center will blend science, genetics, research and clinical expertise in one building.”

The Sanford BioBank, which serves as a library for researchers to make discoveries in breast cancer and other diseases, will also be housed in the new building. The BioBank will have space for clinical and laboratory research staff, offering patients a location to enroll and providing support for clinical trials and genomic analysis taking place at Sanford USD Medical Center.
