Sanford Health in the news

The Telegraph (UK) published a story about golfer Jack Nicklaus’s experimental procedure through Sanford Health, which removed stem cells from his abdomen and inserted them into his lower back, allowing him to be back on the golf course within a week entirely pain free. Previously, he could not stand for longer than 10 minutes or swing a golf club.

President and CEO Kelby Krabbenhoft was featured in Modern Healthcare discussing the affiliation with the Good Samaritan Society, our 25-year rollout plan, and Sanford Health’s international growth and why it’s good for the organization, among other things.
