Thanks to South Dakota banking laws Sanford will be here as soon as they fleece more 1st Premier Bank customers with a usurious 25% interest rate on overdue balances.

Could NOT be any worse than Altru. Sanford is at least investing in the community in Fargo. Maybe that is what we need here in Grand Forks.

It’s not a buyout or merger, so how about an affiliation with Mayo Clinic? That would be a game changer!!

Sanford is not a world class leader in healthcare, Mayo is. Let’s hope the reporter used the correct terms.

If buying struggling health care providers to create a monopoly and plastering your name on sports facilities is considered investing in the community, then Sanford is doing that. Altru making a long relationship with Mayo formal would bring even better care to our area.

Let’s hope this means that instead of people going to Fargo for healthcare at Sanford’s new $350 mill. hospital Fargoans will be coming to GF to Mayo/Altru. All those Manitobans that use Mayo in the winter in Florida & Arizona will come to GF for healthcare the rest of the year. This could also be huge for the UND Medical School.

No, I didn’t. Hopefully that doesn’t mean the Med School is going to migrate to NDSU which is what Fargo interests lobbied for all along.
