Sanford merger with Fairview is called off

Sanford Health announced Thursday that it is discontinuing the merger process with Fairview Health Services.

“The significant benefits we identified for a combined system with Fairview Health Services compelled us to exhaust all potential pathways to completing our proposed merger,” said Bill Gassen, President and CEO, Sanford Health. “However, without support for this transaction from certain Minnesota stakeholders, we have determined it is in the best interest of Sanford Health to discontinue the merger process.”

“This is the right decision for our patients and residents, our people and the communities we serve,” Gassen continued. “We remain committed to providing world-class care to patients across our footprint. We are extremely grateful for the support we have received from many Minnesotans who share our vision to invest in health care delivery and enhance access to care in both rural and urban areas.”

“Throughout this process, the one thing that has remained constant is the incredible pride I have in our organization and the care our people deliver every day,” Gassen said. “We are fortunate to be in a strong position, with opportunities to invest in our people and our patients, and I am excited as ever about our path forward.”
