Thank you Denny Sanford

$125 Million to establish Sanford Imagenetics

Revolutionary man. Extraordinary gifts.

One person can make a difference. The kind of difference that improves lives not only here at home, but around the world.

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. Because of his generosity, children have better access to health care across the globe, and a cure for Type 1 diabetes, breast cancer and other diseases could happen in our lifetime.

But Mr. Sanford isn’t done yet. His commitment to ongoing philanthropic efforts continues, stronger than ever. Sanford Health is announcing a program like none other in the country thanks to his generosity.

One-of-a-kind program.

The program will extend across the entire footprint of Sanford Health. It will transform internal medicine, 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).

Sanford Imagenetics will be the first program in the nation to fully integrate genetics and genomic medicine into primary care for all adults.
