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 Weight Management Recipe


  • 1½ cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 1½ tsp. smoked paprika, divided
  • 1½ tsp. crushed rosemary
  • 1½ tsp. kosher salt, divided
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • 2¼ lb. chicken breast cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ¼ red onion, rings separated & cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • ¼ tsp. ground pepper


  1. In a large bowl, stir together the yogurt, lemon juice, 1¼ teaspoon smoked paprika, rosemary, 1 teaspoon salt and garlic powder. Add the chicken pieces and stir to coat. Cover and marinate in the fridge for at least 1 hour and up to 8 hours.
  2. Place the onion and red bell pepper pieces in a medium bowl. Toss with olive oil, ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. If using wooden skewers, soak in warm water for at least 30 minutes. Lightly brush the grill with canola oil.
  4. Thread the chicken (shake off and discard excess marinade), onion and red bell pepper pieces onto 6 skewers. Sprinkle with remaining ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika and ¼ teaspoon salt.
  5. Grilled until the chicken is cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes, turning halfway through cooking. Serve.
