About The Dakota Hospital Foundation

Since its beginning in 1930, Dakota Hospital Foundation has fulfilled their mission Dedicated to Community Health and Wellness. The health care ‘pioneers’ who established Dakota Hospital Foundation (DHF) also nurtured a tradition of community health service leadership represented by today’s Foundation members.

Over the last 80+ years, Vermillion’s hospital has grown into a comprehensive community medical center providing care for the whole family. Together with Sanford Vermillion Medical Center, DHF continues to be dedicated to community health and wellness.
