Sanford, Avera to Add Hundreds of Jobs

Fargo, N.D.-based Sanford Health and Sioux Falls, S.D.-based Avera Health will each be hiring 300-350 employees this year, according to a Grand Forks Herald news report.

Sanford specifically is looking to fill 250 positions for its new hospital in Aberdeen and another 100 nursing spots in Fargo. Both systems will be adding technical employees to help the organizations move forward in the adoption of electronic health records.

The move to hire showed the two healthcare organizations have weathered the current hospital employment trends of organizations looking to cut jobs in the face of lowered reimbursements and a struggling economy.
