Sanford To Donate $125 Million

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota philanthropist T. Denny Sanford is giving another $125 million to the Dakotas-based health system that bears his name for a program that will incorporate genetics into primary care.

Sanford Health announced the new Sanford Imagenetics program during a news conference Tuesday in Sioux Falls.

Chief Executive Officer Kelby Krabbenhoft says internal medicine is at the crossroads of all aspects of health care, and combining it with genetics is “the perfect marriage.”

Sanford is a 78-year-old retired banker and businessman who gave $400 million in 2007 to the Sioux Valley health system, which then adopted his name. He’s given the system more than $700 million.

Sanford Health is based in Sioux Falls, S.D., and Fargo, N.D. It has locations in 126 communities in nine states.
