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

CentraCare Health is pleased to announce that it will build a new CentraCare Clinic – Albany this year. Upon completion, the new state-of-the-art facility on the east end of Railroad Avenue will replace the current clinic at 320 Third Avenue.

With approximately 16,000-feet of space, the new building will include exam and minor procedure rooms for Family Medicine and Urgent Care services, a Radiology department, a Physical Therapy suite and Laboratory Services. In addition to these traditional clinic services, the clinic will continue with outreach services including obstetrics and gynecology, orthopedics and podiatry.

According to Michele Fisher, the section director of Family Medicine at CentraCare Health, “Building a new clinic in Albany is an exciting part of CentraCare’s commitment to supporting health and wellness in Albany the surrounding communities served. Our providers are eager to serve patients in a new facility — conveniently located in Albany — with expanded urgent care services to better meet growing health care needs.”
