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.

CentraCare Health Weight Management Recipe


  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 package (20 oz.) lean ground turkey
  • 2 medium zucchinis, quartered lengthwise and cut into ½-inch slices
  • 2 banana peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 can (15 oz.) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (14½ oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • ½ tsp. salt


  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add turkey, zucchini, onion, peppers, garlic and oregano. Cook 10-12 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink and vegetables are tender, breaking up turkey into crumbles; drain.
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients; heat through, stirring occasionally.


  • Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
