CentraCare Health – Monticello employees support Project H.E.A.L.

Employees at CentraCare Health – Monticello pledged to help support Project H.E.A.L. during the annual employee giving campaign.  Employees generously donated more than $44,800 to support local health needs including $8,400 designated to Project H.E.A.L.

Project H.E.A.L. provides free health screenings and basic health services to anyone in need.  It is offered the first Thursday of each month at 5 p.m. at the Monticello High School, 5225 School Boulevard, in conjunction with the SHARE food distribution program coordinated by A Glorious Church.  Health care volunteers from CentraCare Health – Monticello, CentraCare Health – Monticello Medical Group and the Monticello Clinic are available to answer health-related questions and provide basic health care services.  Project H.E.A.L. provides care to individuals for a variety of health concerns from sore throats and head lice to burns and back injuries.

“I’m so proud of our employees and their willingness to personally contribute to the annual giving campaign,” said Mary Ellen Wells, Administrator for CentraCare Health – Monticello.  “At CentraCare Health – Monticello we care.  We care about our patients.  We care about our residents.  And we care about our community by volunteering our time and donating financial resources to improve the health of our community through programs such as Project H.E.A.L.”

Project H.E.A.L.’s mission is to help overcome barriers to health care for the under-served population of Central Minnesota.  These barriers may include transportation, inadequate or lack of insurance, financial resources for co-payments and medications, treatment plan, language and culture.  Including the Monticello location, Project H.E.A.L. has ten sites across St. Cloud, Long Prairie, Melrose and Sauk Centre.

Through the annual giving campaign and contributions to health-related programs including Project H.E.A.L., CentraCare Health – Monticello’s employees demonstrate their commitment to supporting health and wellness in the community.
