Sanford Medical Center at Fargo should be shuttered. Pathetic facilities and completely insensitive staff! The front desk staff who are supposed to help with the admission into Emergency Center are completely clueless. They have no idea about the proper procedure and the paperwork that needs to be filled out. The premises is very filthy and looks like it was cleaned eons ago. The staff is also no better. In fact, I think the doctors who work here are quacks. They have no clue about how to address something as simple as a bleeding cut. They applied a bandage and tried to send me away. When I insisted on getting stitches, they were somewhat shocked and finally relented. Oh, BTW, these idiots charge through the roof for their good-for-nothing service. Stay away from this hospital if you love yourself and your loved ones.

The ED staff and doctor were excellent. I was helping my kid with his work when a nail gun accidentally went off, and I got shot on my hand. I was freaking out when I reached the hospital. The ED nurse helped me in remaining calm, and after a few tense moments, the doctor pulled out the nail and dressed up the wound. Gave some painkillers and even cracked a few jokes which helped me to settle down. I also hit a nurse accidentally, who just shrugged it off and went on to pat me after I sat quietly during the nail removal. Very impressed. I will not hesitate to visit this hospital for all my healthcare needs.

If you ignore the ridiculous furniture that this hospital has, then this is the best hospital on this side of the woods. Excellent staff, very professional and extremely patient friendly. They have treated my family and me very well over the past few months. Keep up the good work. One sincere request, please get new furniture in. People will bless you.

My friend’s family came in with pediatric trauma. From the moment they entered the hospital till they walked out of the hospital they received exceptional patient care. They received focused nursing care and multidisciplinary treatment which included instant access to specialists, and age-specific care.

My friend is very grateful to the hospital. We are happy that we have a hospital like this in our neighborhood.
