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 Cancer Center broke ground on Tuesday, Oct. 31st on a new survivor building to be named “Coborn Healing Center.” In a space next to Coborn Cancer Center, the Coborn Healing Center will offer services to care for the mind, body and spirit of those 7,000 people who begin or continue their cancer journey at Coborn Cancer Center.

Programming in the new building will include art and music therapy, Enhancement Program, support groups, spiritual well-being, fitness classes, integrative therapy (acupuncture, massage, healing touch) and an interactive kitchen/classroom.

Coborn Healing Center is the result of a recently completed $3.2 million fundraising campaign which included a $1-million lead gift from the Coborn Family Foundation. Construction will begin this week, and estimated completion date is mid-2018.
