Where we are today

 

Just five years ago, Sanford Health set out on a mission to bring heart care to Bemidji. Our community rallied around this cause and helped create a program that has cared for so many hearts right here at home.

 

Because of this amazing support — from an outstanding group of donors — a cardiovascular center opened in the heart of the Sanford Bemidji Medical Center. We proved the old adage to be true: If you build it, they will come.

 

From the first heart catheterization procedure in 2011, this program has now grown to encompass a new spectrum of treatment. Together, we’ve treated thousands of patients close to home, producing better outcomes and saving lives.

 

 

But there’s more to be done.

 

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. Medical experts agree that treatment for heart attacks should occur within 90 minutes of patients entering the emergency room.

 

Without treatment in Bemidji, our loved ones would be rushed to Duluth, Grand Forks or Fargo for treatment, risking permanent heart damage and even loss of life.

 

You can help save lives.

 

 

 

With your partnership, we will expand to meet the growing heart and vascular needs of our community and invest in new technologies and treatment options right here at home.

 

You can help transform heart care in Bemidji.

 

 

 

Your investment today will drive innovation and create a lasting legacy to keep Sanford ahead of the curve in caring for our community’s hearts.
