WEST FARGO, N.D.—Sanford plans to develop a Veteran's Lounge at the Fargo Sanford Medical Center.

Thursday morning, veterans and families gathered at the West Fargo VFW to get the first look at the design for the new lounge, which will be on the 1st floor of the center.

The 1,000 square foot room will be exclusively for veterans and loved ones while they wait in the hospital.

It's part of the newly formed veteran's department at Sanford.

"It's giving the recognition to somebody who has sacrificed their time and their liberties for this country - it's as easy as that," said Brad Reed, VFW Post Commander.

The lounge is expected to be finished in the spring of next year.
