About Sanford Imagenetics
As the country's preeminent health care philanthropist, Denny Sanford has already given more than $700 million to Sanford Health and more than $1 billion to health care and medical research efforts. Mr. Sanford has agreed to gift Sanford Health $125 million to help establish a revolutionary program – the first of its kind in the nation – that will fully integrate genetics and genomic medicine into primary care for adults.
Sanford Imagenetics will transform internal medicine across our entire footprint. It will provide practicing geneticists, and those in training, with an opportunity to advance the field of genetics through robust research programs and clinical application of research findings. They will also have access to state-of-the-art facilities, the latest technologies, bench laboratory space and a laboratory certified by the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA).
Former Sanford Research president, H. Eugene Hoyme, M.D., serves as medical director for Sanford Imagenetics. Dr. Hoyme is internationally known for his research and has held numerous leadership roles in regional and national pediatric and medical genetics organizations.
