SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Sanford Health is considering expanding to China.
The Dakotas-based hospital system is sending a team in August to the country to see whether it is possible to open a pediatric clinic in the city of Ningo, a port on the East China Sea.
The Argus Leader reports that Dave Link, senior executive vice president, will lead the team of four in China next month.
Sanford Health is based in Sioux Falls, S.D., and Fargo, N.D. It has a presence in more than 100 communities in seven states and bills itself as the nation's largest not-for-profit rural health care provider.
Sanford has opened or will soon open clinics in Ghana, Ireland and Israel. A team is currently in South America looking at possible clinic locations in Bolivia and Ecuador.
