Join us as we look back on The Chamber’s 2015-16 year by celebrating our accomplishments and honoring our outstanding volunteers. We’ll share our priorities for the upcoming fiscal year as well as recognize our 2016 Legacy Leader.

Dr. Roger Gilbertson, Sanford HealthThe 2016 Legacy Leader is Dr. Roger Gilbertson, whose interest in medicine sparked as a boy growing up in Minnesota. In 1959, he graduated from Concordia College and the University of Minnesota Medical School, serving his residency in radiology at the University of Minnesota and Minneapolis VA Hospital.

In 1971, he joined Radiologist Ltd., which was then affiliated with The Neuropsychiatric Institute (TNI) and St. Luke’s Hospital. In 1987, Radiologist Ltd. merged with Fargo Clinic. Gilbertson served on the Fargo Clinic Board of Directors from 1988 to 1992. He also became a clinical faculty member of the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences.

In 1993, St. Luke’s Hospitals and the Fargo Clinic merged to form the MeritCare Health System, and Gilbertson served as a top executive and crucial leader during the transition. He then became president and CEO of MeritCare Health System, a position he would retain for 17 years. Gilbertson’s leadership allowed MeritCare to succeed and grow, and he steered the merger of MeritCare and Sanford Health to its successful completion.

Sanford and the UND Foundation honored Gilbertson and his work in 2010 by establishing a $1.5 million Dr. Roger Gilbertson Endowed Chair of Neurology at the UND medical school.

In 2005, Concordia also honored him with the Alumni Achievement Award.

Gilbertson also served the community through his involvement in numerous organizations such as the Greater Fargo Moorhead Economic Development Corporation, Greater North Dakota Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, the Downtown Community Partnership, and more.
