FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Sanford Health-MeritCare officially introduced the merged entity's new brand on Tuesday as Sanford Health.

Sanford Health President and CEO Kelby Krabbenhoft introduced the new brand to the entire health system during a simulcast address Tuesday morning.

Sioux Falls, S.D.-based Sanford and Fargo-based MeritCare merged last year.

The entire organization will bear the name Sanford Health in honor of Denny Sanford, the South Dakota businessman and philanthropist who made a $400 million gift in 2007 to what was then known as Sioux Valley Health System in Sioux Falls.
