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

St. Cloud Pride weekend begins with ‘Philadelphia’ movie showing

Published in Media Releases Author: CentraCare

The feature film “Philadelphia” will be shown at 5:30 p.m. on September 15 in the St. Cloud Hospital Hoppe Auditorium in honor of St. Cloud Pride weekend. 

Tom Hanks stars in his first Academy Award-winning performance. Hanks plays a talented, homosexual lawyer, Andrew Beckett, who has contracted AIDS, thus resulting in him being fired. He hires a black lawyer, Joe Miller (Denzel Washington), to fight against this discrimination in court. Miller is reluctant at first, as he dislikes homosexuals, but soon realizes the discrimination practiced against Beckett is similar to the discrimination Miller battles himself.

This is a free event and free popcorn will be available. A door prize drawing will occur immediately after the film for two movie tickets to Parkwood 18; you must be present to win.

St. Cloud Pride weekend will take place September 16-18, 2016.
