Making Their Mark

Making Their Mark
SIOUX FALLS, SD - In less than a year, Sioux Falls will be home to two Heart Hospitals. Sanford's new addition is nearly complete and is set to open next spring.

But before it does, those involved in the process are making their mark.

With pen in hand, nurses, physicians, office staff, housekeeping all signed their names on a piece of Sanford's new hospital.

The $78 million building, which is five stories tall, will soon be open. Sanford's Heart Hospital will have 56 in-patient rooms, doctor's offices, 8 catheterization labs, operating rooms and still more room for testing.

But as patients drive up to the front of the building, they'll see hundreds of names signed by the hundreds that are ready to welcome patients.

“We're signing a piece that goes up on the portico and all these names are people that are interested in it, that have worked on it, that have planned it. As you know it opens next March and patients coming in and this is our first step to making it personal,” Sanford USD Medical Center President Dr. Charles O'Brien said.

This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:
The wrong name was used for the doctor in the prior version of this story.
