Our Purpose

We hold a vision for all of us to live a healthy life. As a provider of care, employer to many, and a community Foundation, we encourage and inspire health and well-being. We also know there is a need for healing and comfort in every life, so at the heart of CentraCare is a commitment to the patients and families we serve in the communities we all call home:

We’re here for your whole life — to listen then serve, to guide and heal — because health means everything.

Each community we serve has historical roots. These roots share a purpose and leadership by caring people — sisters of faith, civic leaders, farmers, doctors, nurses and others. Then as now, our collective mission is to serve, providing expert health care that is close to home.

We Value:


We work together to ensure our patients, their families, and all of us at CentraCare feel safe and are safe.
