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.

Ken Holmen, MD
President and CEO

Our Year in Review

2021 was a challenging year but we have so much to be thankful for — especially our CentraCare family and our community.

This year’s Annual Report celebrates our successes and highlights the new Emergency Psychiatric Assessment, Treatment and Healing Unit (EmPATH Unit). The EmPATH Unit provides faster assessment of those dealing with mental health issues and does so in a unique and comforting setting.

Our shared sense of purpose gives us hope and renews our commitment to guide and heal,
listen and serve — because health means everything.

If you have questions about any of the information within our report, we encourage you to email us at
