MN AG Raises Concerns Over Possible Sanford, Fairview Merger



Bookmark and Share

Sioux Falls based Sanford Health merged with a North Dakota hospital group, and now it's eyeing a similar deal in Minnesota.


However, Sanford’s possible merger with Fairview Health is raising concerns.


  Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson says she will not let a merger happen without public input, because Fairview Health is a charitable institution.


Fairview is a well-known and respected name in Minnesota.


Representatives from both Fairview and Sanford Health responded by saying talks are in the early stages.


 The Minnesota attorney general will hold a public forum April 7th. Sanford Health's CEO Kelby Krabbenhoft released a statement saying” the two health groups have a lot in common when it comes to values and priorities.”
