Sanford, University of Minnesota won’t pursue Fairview takeover

By Logan Lafferty

The CEO of South Dakota-based Sanford, whose merger effort came under intense scrutiny the past two weeks, said Wednesday afternoon that he was ending discussions because Sanford has a policy of “only going where we are invited.”…John Kralewski, professor emeritus at the U’s Department of Health Policy and Management, said Sanford Health’s withdrawal presents a golden opportunity for the university and Fairview to chart a new course for their alignment. One possibility, he said, is to invite the Mayo Clinic into the discussion as a possible collaborator. “If you could get Mayo to take over the medical school, imagine that,” Kralewski said.
