Minnesota attorney general calls for delay in Sanford-Fairview merger timeline
January 26, 2023
Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison has asked for Sanford and Fairview to slow down their proposed mega-merger, saying a scheduled closing for the transaction on March 31 is coming too soon to address questions about the deal.
Deputy Attorney General John Keller disclosed the request Wednesday night during a public meeting in Worthington.
Keller cited the University of Minnesota's concern that Sanford Health and Fairview Health Services have not adequately considered the impact of their combination on the U's academic medical center.
