FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Sanford Health plans a center in southwest Fargo dedicated to helping athletes boost their performance.

The health system that formed last year when Sanford Health of Sioux Falls, S.D., and Fargo-based MeritCare merged also plans a digital mammography center in the South Dakota city of Chamberlain.

The athletics center in Fargo will be modeled on one built two years ago in Sioux Falls that cost $2.5 million. Sanford also expects soon to have an agreement to provide sports medicine services for North Dakota State University in Fargo.

Sanford says the Chamberlain mammography center will help underserved women in central South Dakota. It is being funded with a $489,300 grant from the charitable trust established by the late hotel and real estate baroness Leona Helmsley.
