The price tag for a new Sanford Health hospital in Fargo has been trimmed by nearly $50 million.
The size of the medical center slated to open in 2016 remains about 1 million square feet, but plans now call for a smaller base and an additional floor. The change reduces the cost from $541 million to $494 million.
Dennis Millirons, president of Sanford Medical Center in Fargo, says planning for the project will shift to detailed drawings next month. Steel will start going up in March or April. The shape of the hospital will resemble an "X'' when viewed from above.
Sanford Health is based in Fargo and in Sioux Falls. It bills itself as the largest not-for-profit rural health care provider in the country.
