    November 9, 2017

    HAZEN, N.D. (AP) — A new state-of-the-art medical center has opened in Mercer County.

    After years of planning, the Sakakawea Medical Center formally opened Wednesday in Hazen. The Level 5 trauma center employs more than 130 people, has 13 critical access beds and 34 basic care rooms.

    Patient care director Marcie Schulz tells KXMB says the new facility is not a whole lot bigger than the old one, but has more efficient use of space. It brings all nurses into one central area, whether is operating room, emergency room or floor nurses.
