COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update 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.

Ken Holmen, MD
President and CEO

Monticello Cancer Center’s Healing Garden Begins to Bloom

Published in Media Releases Author: CentraCare

The Monticello Cancer Center’s Healing Garden is now home to a rain garden. Volunteers from the Wright County Soil and Water Conservation District, Monticello’s Connect 5 program, the Monticello Cancer Center and community members began planting the rain garden which will not only become a beautiful part of the Healing Garden but also a beneficial, natural way to purify water that may soak into the ground or reach the Mississippi River.

Funded in part by a grant from the Wright County Soil and Water Conservation District, the rain garden will also serve as a place for education. Signs explaining how to build a rain garden and descriptions about how they work will be placed in the Healing Garden.

The Monticello Cancer Center’s Healing Garden is designed to create a beautiful and reflective space for patients and families looking for a place of hope and healing.
