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 offers new Multidisciplinary Cancer Clinic to lung and breast cancer patients

Published in Media Releases Author: CentraCare

The Multidisciplinary Cancer Clinic at Coborn Cancer Center minimizes the time between cancer diagnosis and treatment for lung and breast cancer patients.

Program features include:

  • In a single visit, patients meet with a team of experts in a comforting environment.
  • Care team includes surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pulmonologists, genetic counselors, nurses, pathologists and radiologists.
  • Patient and care team together select a personalized, unified treatment plan.

This process leads to better patient experience, higher quality outcomes, improved safety and lower cost of care. Lung cancer patient Jo Hendrickson from Cushing said, “All I had to do was show up on this one day and see all my physicians and care team. Everyone was on the same page, so nice, so caring and so kind. It was like I was the only person they were taking care of. I call them the ‘A team’”.
