Sanford Vermillion is pleased to announce that Kara Kristine was born to Neil and Paige Chapman on July 26. At 6 lbs. 2 oz., Kara is the first child to be born at Sanford Vermillion under the newly unified and renamed Sanford Health.
The Chapmans, who live in Vermillion, received a Sanford baby blanket and onesie to celebrate Kara's birth. Her arrival arises during the rebirth of Sanford Health, which on July 20 unified its health system under one name, mission, vision, values and wordmark.
"Sanford is built around passion and values," said Tim Tracy, CEO of Sanford Vermillion. "Though we are expanding geographically, Sanford remains an organization whose roots are in providing care right here at home."
The first child born at each facility in the Sanford Health system on or after July 20 also received a Sanford onesie and blanket to honor the event.
