Sanford Health Continuing Care
Sanford Health Marillac Manor was founded by the Benedictine Sisters of Richardton in 1977 in response to the needs for senior housing in the Bismarck area. It was built on the same campus as Sanford Health St. Vincent's Continuing Care Center, which the Sisters founded as St. Vincent's Nursing Home in 1941.
Sanford Health Marillac Manor I has 28 studio/efficiency apartments and 13 single-bedroom apartments. The main floor apartments have a sliding door with a patio and a small garden plot. A community center, which connected Marillac Manor with St. Vincent's, was added in 1984.
In 1989, Marillac ManorII was constructed with 36 additional apartments. This newer building features a sky-lighted atrium that offers an attractive gathering place for activities for the residents. Every apartment is fully carpeted and equipped with a stove, refrigerator and air conditioning. A large chapel, which is always open, provides a quiet, sacred place for daily Mass, rosary and private prayer.
In 2000, the Benedictine Sisters began looking for a healthcare partner to assist them in their ministry at St. Vincent's and Marillac Manor. They leased management of St. Vincent's to legacy Medcenter One (now Sanford Health) and sold them the facility in 2005. In 2007, they also leased the management of Marillac Manor to legacy Medcenter One (now Sanford Health), so both facilities could be under one management family.
The Benedictine Sisters continue as the Catholic sponsors of both facilities. The Sisters continue to provide leadership in the area of spiritual care.
You are welcome and encouraged, when necessary, to bring in outside agencies or individuals to assist you with daily needs, as Sanford Health Marillac Manor staff may not provide you with assistance in activities of daily living. Residents must be able to live independently and/or direct their own cares.
Sanford Health Marillac Manor is more than an apartment building. It is a community of people who enjoy companionship, neighborliness and friendship. To foster community, the Sisters designed Sanford Health Marillac Manor to have a homey environment with common areas for relaxation, visiting, card playing and watching videos. Many unique features make it an attractive and comfortable home for our residents.
