Project:

Our community members voiced a clear desire to include a wellness center as part of the new CentraCare Health — Long Prairie medical campus. We listened. Plans are underway to construct a 12,000-square-foot, $4.5-million building adjacent to the new hospital and clinic.

The Regional Community Well-Being Center will provide programs, services and amenities designed to promote healthy lifestyles, enhance quality of life and support well-being through the six dimensions of wellness.
