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

Coborn Healing Center Receives Donation from MN Limited’s 2017 Charity Golf Outing

Published in Media Releases Author: CentraCare

Minnesota Limited, one of the largest pipeline transmission contractors, held a charity golf outing at Pebble Creek Golf Course to help raise money and breast cancer awareness. Minnesota Limited gave a generous donation of $32,285.00 to CentraCare Health’s new Coborn Healing Center.

The Coborn Healing Center, adjacent to the Coborn Cancer Center, will act as a community resource center for cancer treatment in the region. The dedicated educational space will allow us to provide information to the community on various cancers in terms of prevention and raising awareness. This will be a resource for patients before, during and after treatment.

The Coborn Healing Center will provide a space for:

  • A vast array of services under one roof to target the needs of our patients. By customizing patient experience to patient needs, we can impact physical symptoms of side effects experienced during and after treatment.
  • Integrative Therapies such as: acupuncture, aromatherapy, acupressure, healing touch, massage therapy and animal-assisted therapy. These supported measures help control symptoms, enhance well-being and contribute to overall patient care.
  • Support groups. Research shows that joining a support group improves both quality of life and survival.
  • Community outreach in the form of prevention and screening programs. The programs will create engaged partners and community members to make more informed choices about their personal health care.
