Thirty-eight administrators at Sanford Health have accepted early retirement or a new position under a restructuring plan estimated to save $10 million a year, Forum Communications reports.

Another 12 managers or executives affected by the restructuring will be bought out.

The South Dakota-based health system also plans to construct a new office building next to a medical center in Fargo, N.D., to consolidate management operations, according to the Associated Press. Top executives will remain at corporate offices in Sioux Falls, S.D.

Sanford officials were in merger talks with Minneapolis-based Fairview Health Services earlier this year, but they called off the negotiations in April after Minnesota leaders raised concerns.
