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 is hosting its annual Diabetes Health Fair for the community on Wednesday, November 11, 2015, from 3 – 6 p.m. at the hospital. This free event will feature blood pressure checks and glucose screenings; tips for healthy food choices; and interactive education on diabetes products, technology, resources and treatments.

Current statistics show that 18,000 new cases of diabetes are diagnosed in Minnesota each year. Additionally, one in four people with diabetes do not know they have the disease. Many people living with diabetes, or prediabetes, are unaware of the steps they can take to help themselves feel better and manage their overall health. By hosting the annual Diabetes Health Fair, CentraCare Health - Monticello demonstrates its commitment to helping members of our community learn how to better manage and prevent diabetes while also taking charge of their overall health. This fun and interactive event allows community members to ask questions and gather information to inspire healthier lifestyle choices. For more information about the Diabetes Health Fair, call 763-271-2405.
