SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Two large employers in Sioux Falls have agreed to merge.

The membership of senior care provider Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society voted Tuesday to merge with Sanford Health.

Sanford Health’s board of directors approved the merger last week. The deal still needs regulatory approval.

The Argus Leader reports the two nonprofits combined employ about 10,900 in the Sioux Falls area, with a total of 47,000 employees nationwide.

Good Sam’s has 200 locations in 24 states. Its board previously voted to accept the plan. The society’s membership includes current executives, location administrators and executive directors and managers, as well as some former employees.
