Sanford Children’s Clinic – Duncan was the 1st in a series of new Sanford Children’s World Clinics being developed around the world. The new, state of the art castle theme clinic was built on a four acre lot on the NW corner of Duncan Regional Hospital campus. The 8000 sq foot facility opened August 2009. Prior to Sanford Children’s, there were no pediatricians practicing in Duncan. Sanford owns and operates the clinic connecting the clinic to our system-wide electronic medical system, called “One Chart.” Duncan Regional Hospital is the local facility for inpatient care with a newly redesigned OB/GYN patient room area and nursery! With over 500+ births per year and nearly a quarter of the Duncan population being under age 18, a pediatric practice is well within reach!
