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

Published in Media Releases Author: CentraCare

St. Cloud, Minn. - Adult & Pediatric Urology (APU) has joined CentraCare Health and has changed its name to CentraCare Clinic – Adult & Pediatric Urology. APU will continue to operate at 2351 Connecticut Avenue, Sartell, with the same providers, phone number and clinic hours. “Other than changing our name, we don’t expect our patients or the community to notice any big changes,” said Greg Parries, MD, Adult & Pediatric Urology. “However, by integrating more closely with CentraCare Clinic, our patients will benefit from many behind-the-scenes advanced services that a larger clinic can provide.”

“We are excited to partner with Adult & Pediatric Urology,” said David Tilstra, MD, president of CentraCare Clinic. “They have a strong reputation for quality care, being recognized, along with St. Cloud Hospital, as one of America's Best Hospitals for urology in US News & World Report three times within the past 10 years.”

APU, which has been serving Central Minnesota since 1981, employs eight board-certified physicians, five physician assistants and 58 support staff. APU serves patients at its Sartell clinic as well as 14 outreach locations. They are the largest full-service urology clinic in Central Minnesota.
