The Dakotas-based health network has opened fi ve clinics in the African nation since 2012 and broke ground last week for a sixth. The clinics have treated more than 180,000 patients.

Sanford said in a statement that it hopes to serve 4.5 million patients annually by 2020 through a partnership with Ghana’s Ministry of Health.

“Much of the rural population in Ghana does not have access to basic care,” said Kojo Taylor, president of Sanford International Clinic-Ghana. “The addition of these clinics will greatly change the scope of health care across the nation.”
