Sanford, Good Samaritan Society teaming up to build long-term care facility in Mandan

MANDAN, N.D. - Sanford Health and the Good Samaritan Society will be creating 50 to 60 new jobs in Mandan when their new long-term care facility opens in January 2017.

Both organizations announced July 22 that they will be teaming up to open a 120 bed rehabilitation and skilled care center in southeast Mandan. The joint venture will provide the Bismarck-Mandan area with 397 skilled nursing beds, 18 basic care beds, 16 assisted living units, 77 senior apartments and two twin homes.

When the new center opens, the Sanford Care Center off Collins Avenue will close and residents there will have first refusal on the new facility.

"These 400 beds that are going to be in this joint venture will be a significant investment and a wonderful collaboration between two North Dakota cultures in Bismarck-Mandan to deliver that care," says Dr. Craig Lambrecht, Sanford Health.

The cost of the project is $28 million.
