T. Denny Sanford Gives $125M For Internal Medicine, Genetics Research

Sanford Health announced Tuesday T. Denny Sanford has given the health care organization a $125 million gift to fund internal medicine and genetics research.

The gift will establish Sanford Imagenetics. According to Sanford officials, this new program is a first-of-its-kind program in the country that integrates genomic medicine into primary care for adults.

With this new gift, internal medicine physicians at the hospital will be able to use genetic testing and counseling on patients. At the news conference, Sanford Health CEO Kelby Krabbenhoft says doctors can find someone's unique genetic profile from just a small drop of blood and they can use this testing to provide a unique treatment for each and every patient.

"Internal medicine could get married to genetics and create a new frontier," Krabbenhoft said.

The hospital has already started recruiting doctors and researchers in internal medicine and genetics to support the new program. It will also partner with Augustana College and the University of South Dakota to develop new programs to train future doctors, nurses and scientists in genomic medicine.

T. Denny Sanford has now given nearly $1 billion to Sanford Health.
