Melrose Community Campaign
Thank you to each of the 236 donors who contributed $810,580 to the capital campaign in support of the new hospital project. We are well on our way to the $1.5 million goal.
While the project has moved into the construction phase, fundraising efforts are continuing to help support pieces of the project that wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of the community.
CentraCare Health – Melrose is constructing a new hospital to better serve the 11,000 residents in the Melrose service area. This building project ensures that we will be providing the necessary facilities, amenities and resources to ultimately improve the patient care process and foster health care excellence well into the future.
