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

In 2021, Help Us Provide Up-To-Date Rehabilitation Care For Pediatric Patients

Having quality pediatric rehabilitation services close to home is vital. Our current Rehabilitation space is great for our adult patients, but is inappropriate, distracting and, in some areas, even dangerous for treating pediatric patients.

Additional equipment is needed to provide up-to-date, evidence-based care for athletes of all ages. Your donation to the 2021 Melrose Harvest Celebration will help us to modify our current space to meet the needs of our youngest patients. Through the purchase of age-appropriate toys, equipment and assessments, we can make treatment more like play – and play is what children do!

We also plan to purchase a squat rack, treadmill and other equipment for our adult patients.
