A leading innovator: Tjarks received top physician award

In his 30 years of practicing medicine, Dr. Brian Tjarks has always been an innovator.
From being a part of the committee that brought electronic doctor visits to South Dakota, to utilizing new health care technology, it’s only fitting that Tjarks was named Sanford Health’s Innovator of the Year during a March 1 banquet in Sioux Falls.

Specializing in acute care, Tjarks has been looking for ways to stay on the cutting edge of health care technology. But he’s not alone in his journey, thanks in large part to the health company he’s been working under for the past 11 years.
