COVID-19 INFORMATION Learn More

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to help us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.

Foundation: Partnering with Purpose Every Day

Philanthropy & Community Health

Partnering with Purpose is something we do every day at the CentraCare Health Foundation. Whether it’s with individuals, families, businesses or organizations, we continue to partner to improve health and well-being in Central Minnesota.

Thanks to the support of generous donors, our Foundation raised more than $10 million this past year. In addition, our gift planning program reported $12 million in gifts from people who designated CentraCare Health Foundation or other charities in their estate plan.

This year, our Foundation also distributed more than $12 million to CentraCare grants, programs and services and to other area partners who help us enhance community health and well-being.

In this report, you see just a few of the stories which demonstrate how community support impacts those we serve. The Beck family benefited from Foundation funds during their time of need. Scholarships provide opportunity for future nurses. Other funds provide care for victims of child abuse and incarcerated individuals. You also will learn about the Roeder family who after the loss of their son, Jackson, chose to help others who suffer from mental illness. Learn about the Jackson Roeder Memorial Fund

These partnerships make a BIG difference in the lives of those we serve.
