It looks like Sanford Health will not be joining forces with a North Dakota physicians group.
We’ve been following this story since last September. That’s when Sanford confirmed it was in talks with Bismarck-based Mid Dakota Clinic.
The FTC and North Dakota’s Attorney General wanted to block it, saying a merger would violate anti-trust law. A North Dakota judge agreed.
Sanford tried to fight it, but a federal appeals court has now affirmed the judge’s decision.
