Sanford Health Donates Building to Concordia for School of Health Professions

Susan Larson, provost and dean of the college, said the expanding health professions school “will educate health professions leaders for the future. Now more than ever, the world needs Cobbers who will influence the affairs of the world through their skills, passion and deep commitment to caring for the health and well-being of others.” “We are at a significant crossroad in our ability to meet workforce challenges,” said Bryan Nermoe, president and CEO of Sanford Fargo. “This is why Sanford has historically invested in Concordia College and will continue to do so in the future. Over the next 10 years, the continuation of our support will expand Concordia’s health career programs to meet the rising demand for healthcare workforce in our region, and improve the health and quality of life for all of us and our loved ones.” During the past several decades, she said, Concordia developed partnerships with health care providers in the area. Sanford, for example, offered educational opportunities for students in the program in their clinic and hospital settings.

“Sanford’s deep commitment to health professions education and the work of Concordia continues to be a game changer in our region,” said Concordia President William Craft in a statement. Concordia will begin renovations on the building adjacent to the southside of campus beginning in 2022.

He said Sanford’s gift will be used to create new educational opportunities, including a simulation space for nursing education and a human performance laboratory. The clinic will be consolidated with the Moorhead Sanford Campus at 4000 28th Ave. S. near Interstate 94 in the southeast part of the city, according to Sanford spokesman Darren Huber.

The programs in the health professions school are clinical laboratory science, exercise science, food/nutrition/dietetics, health care administration, health care financial management, long-term care administration, nursing and social work. There is also a preprofessional advising program for athletic training, chiropractic, dentistry, medicine, occupational therapy, optometry, pharmacy, physical therapy, physician assistant and veterinary medicine. The renovated building will be named the Heimarck Center.

“Ted Heimarck established a legacy of education attuned to the future,” said Craft. “This Concordia-Sanford partnership and historic gift will build on Ted’s trailblazing creativity.” Heimarck, a graduate of the University of Chicago Law School, came to Concordia in 1961 when then-President Joseph Knutson recruited him to teach economics and business administration. Heimarck founded the health care administration program in 1966 and led the program for three decades until his retirement in 1998.
