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

CentraCare Health – Monticello Employees Support Rivers of Hope

Published in Media Releases Author: CentraCare

Employees at CentraCare Health – Monticello pledged to help support Rivers of Hope during the annual employee giving campaign.  Employees generously donated more than $44,800 to support local health needs including $8,400 designated to Rivers of Hope.

Rivers of Hope is a non-profit organization that offers general and legal advocacy, individual and group support and education, information and referrals, youth intervention and prevention services.  The organization was founded in the summer of 1989 by a small group of citizens in Elk River, Minn. who were concerned about domestic violence in their local community. By the mid-1990s, Rivers of Hope expanded from Sherburne County into Wright County and has grown to its current status as the primary provider of domestic violence advocacy services in these counties. 

“I’m so thankful for our employees’ generosity and their willingness to personally pledge financial support to improve the health and well-being of our community,” said Mary Ellen Wells, Administrator for CentraCare Health – Monticello.  “Supporting local health and wellness organizations is one of the many ways that employees at CentraCare Health – Monticello show we care for our community.”

Through the annual giving campaign and contributions to health-related programs including Rivers of Hope, CentraCare Health – Monticello’s employees demonstrate their commitment to improving the health of our patients and community.
