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

Let’s Keep Up the Good.

The worst pandemic in a century brought out the best in people. You were there when you were needed and that’s why we’ll be here for you, always. For everyone who’s stepped up for our community — we’re truly grateful.

For Our Essential Workers

Essential workers like James Maus and Dawn Johnson at Coborn’s worked tirelessly to keep our shelves stocked with produce despite constant shortages. For them and so many others, we’re grateful.

For the Devoted Parents

Parents like Meghan and Tony Dingmann juggled remote work while making the most of teachable moments with their kids. From baking a batch of muffins from scratch to planting seedlings for a vegetable garden, the kids thrived during uncertain times. For them and so many others, we’re grateful.

For Our Frontline Workers

Health care providers like Hani Jacobson, RN, showed up everyday to give their best. From translating complex medical documents for the Somali-speaking community to sharing critical health information on a local radio network. For her and so many others, we’re grateful.
