Groundbreaking

  

November 2, 2009; More than 100 gathered for a ceremonial groundbreaking at the Perham Lakeside Golf Course. The building site was too muddy to accommodate the large crowd, so instead they gathered near the fairways for a staged, first turn of the shovel. 

Numerous speakers participated in a program at the groundbreaking event, including Perham Health CEO, Chuck Hofius, State Sen. Dan Skogen, State House Rep. Mark Murdock, a representative from Congressman Collin Peterson’s office, Sanford officials and local officials. 

By Tuesday morning, Ottertail Aggregate was already moving earth to prepare the site for construction of the $35 million project. The new hospital is about two years from serving its first patient.
