Healthy Community

CentraCare Health is committed to taking a lead role in creating healthy, vibrant communities throughout Central Minnesota. Since 80 percent of wellness happens outside our walls, we partner with area businesses, schools and community leaders to advocate for changes to policies, systems and environment. These changes have the greatest impact on health and drive permanent, lasting change. Become involved:
