(St. Paul, MN) -- Sanford Health and Fairview Health Services are delaying their proposed merger again.

The health systems announced this week a new timeline that prevents a closing before late August.

They also will provide a 90-day notice of the closing.

In February, Sanford and Fairview agreed with Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison's office to delay the merger timeline from March 31st to May 31st.
