SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Dakotas-based Sanford Health has agreed to manage the business operations of Liberty Medical Center in Chester, Mont.

The Sioux Falls Argus Leader reports (http://argusne.ws/1oL7Ed1) that the agreement takes effect Monday for the Montana facilities, which include a hospital, clinic, nursing home and assisted living center.

Derek Daly of Sanford Health will serve as CEO.

Liberty Medical Center board chairwoman Kirsten Kammerzell says rural hospitals are facing many challenges and the deal with Sanford Health will help the hospital in the long term.

Chester is near the Canadian border in north-central Montana. The hospital has about 100 employees and serves about 3,000 people.

Sanford Health is based in Sioux Falls, S.D., and Fargo, N.D.
