Sanford deploying mobile clinic in North Dakota oil patch

Posted: Updated:
FARGO, N.D. -- Sanford Health is deploying the first of two mobile clinics in the western North Dakota oil patch.

The Dakotas-based health network will send the first clinic on wheels into the region in June, providing on-site care for oil workers. The 45-foot-long rig will be staffed by a nurse practitioner or physician assistant, a nurse and a driver who also is a medical technician or radiology technician. It will provide services ranging from physicals to X-rays.

Sanford also is putting a modular clinic in Watford City.

The health network is investing $2.7 million in the project. Annual operating expenses are estimated at $4.8 million.

Sanford Health is based in Fargo, North Dakota and Sioux Falls, South Dakota. It bills itself as the largest, not-for-profit rural health care system in the nation.
