Sanford Health Implants 300 Heart Devices

(Sioux Falls, SD) — Sanford Health is celebrating a big milestone this week. The health system implanted their 300th monitor this week. In 2015, the hospital began implanting heart sensors to monitor patients 24-7. Doctors then read the data and decide what treatments are necessary. Dr. Orvar Jonsson, a Sanford Health cardiologist, says the hospital has seen a roughly 65 percent reduction in people being hospitalized after receiving the device.
