SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Sanford Health officials hope a trip to China will help the Dakotas-based health network firm up plans for a clinic there.

Sanford is planning a children’s clinic in Kunming, a city of 6 million people near China’s border with Vietnam. Senior Executive Vice President Dave Link tells the Argus Leader the nine-member Sanford delegation will work on final details with partners in China. The group was leaving Thursday.

Sanford in the past four years has opened children’s clinics in Oklahoma, California and Oregon, along with regular clinics in the African nation of Ghana. Officials have been working on a move into China for more than a year.

Sanford is based in Sioux Falls, S.D., and Fargo N.D. It bills itself as the nation’s largest not-for-profit rural health care provider.
