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

Project H.E.A.L. (Health, Education, Access, Link) was the recipient of the 2015 Sister Mary Heinen award from the Catholic Health Association of Minnesota. This award recognizes a member of the Catholic Health Association of Minnesota that exemplifies the healing ministry of Jesus and the values of Catholic Social Teaching by providing necessary and accessible health services to the medically underserved.

In May 2001, Project H.E.A.L. began providing free health screenings to the uninsured and underinsured at two locations in St. Cloud. Since that time, it has expanded to sites in Long Prairie, Melrose, Monticello and a third St. Cloud location.

Project H.E.A.L. is an outreach program of the CentraCare Family Health Center in St. Cloud that is made possible thanks to the support of more than 70 volunteers.
