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.

  • Provide two college scholarships for local high school seniors pursuing health care careers;
  • Fund the “Reach out and Read” program, which promotes early literacy and school readiness by making books and reading aloud as a standard part of pediatric primary care;
  • Designated to the Greatest Needs Funds to expand programming and acquire equipment to enhance health experiences for patients at CentraCare – Long Prairie.

Thank you to the sponsors, participants, volunteers and staff who made this event a success again this year! Together, we continue to build a health community.
