Sanford Health welcomes Cassandra Rendon, MD, to the children’s team


Sanford Health in Bemidji welcomes Cassandra Rendon, MD, to the children’s team at the Sanford Bemidji Children’s Clinic.

Dr. Rendon attended Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH, for her undergraduate degree in psychology. She also studied biology while attending University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, ND. After completing her undergraduate degrees, Dr. Rendon attended medical school at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH.

Prior to joining Sanford Health, Dr. Rendon gained valuable knowledge and experience while completing her residency at the University of Wisconsin Clinics and Hospitals in Madison, WI.

Dr. Rendon treats children specializing in well-child and newborn checkups, health education and counseling, preventative care, care for injuries and other health concerns, diagnosing and treating children’s illnesses, preventative health including immunizations and screenings, referrals to specialists as needed, monitoring children’s growth and development, managing medical, developmental and functional issues, adolescent care and treating asthma.

Inspired by the work of Dr. Charles Eastman, a Santee Sioux Native American who was removed from his family to attend western schools before graduating from Dartmouth College and becoming the first western-taught Native American physician, Dr. Rendon applies his philosophy to the care she provides. “Children must early learn the beauty of generosity. They are taught to give what they prize most, that they may taste the happiness of giving,” said Dr. Charles Alexander Eastman (Ohiye S’a).

Outside of providing care for children in the clinic, Dr. Cassandra Rendon enjoys caring for her young son and indulging in creative activities, such as beading and creative Native American jewelry, whenever she has a chance. She also finds herself exploring the beautiful outdoors of northern Minnesota hiking, canoeing, swimming and camping.
