Sanford Health set to open Watford City clinic in August

WATFORD CITY, N.D. — Sanford Health is set to open a new 1,900-square-foot clinic in the western North Dakota oil patch community of Watford City offering specialty care.

The Sanford Health Watford City Clinic with cardiology, podiatry and orthopedic specialists will begin seeing patients Aug. 11.

Physicians will travel from clinics in Bismarck and Dickinson to Watford City each month to care for patients.

The health system recently became the sports medical provider for the school district in Watford City, and as a result, a licensed athletic trainer will provide free sports injury screenings at the new facility.

Sanford Health last year promised a $1 million donation over the next decade to help fund a new hospital in the community. McKenzie County Healthcare Systems broke ground for the $60 million facility in June 2014.
