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

Marco’s matching gift to benefit Cancer Survivorship Center

Published in Media Releases Author: CentraCare

Raising $3.2 million to build a Cancer Survivorship Center to meet the needs of more than 7,000 cancer survivors is a goal for CentraCare Health, and thanks to the generosity of Marco, it’s one big step closer.

Marco has generously agreed to match donations up to $100,000 received by CentraCare Health Foundation before Dec. 31, 2016. CEO Jeff Gau encourages the community to “please join Marco in supporting the Cancer Survivorship Center and CentraCare Health Foundation this year.”

Construction of the Cancer Survivorship Center will be 100 percent donor funded. The Coborn Family Foundation generously donated a $1-million lead gift last year to aid in establishing a cancer survivorship center next to the Coborn Cancer Center in St. Cloud. CentraCare Health employees also contributed more than $400,000 during the 2016 employee campaign.

Every gift of every size makes a difference. Donations can be made online at For other giving options, call 320-240-2810.
