Caring for You in Monticello Comprehensive care for your health, your family, your life, right here in your community

CentraCare - Monticello Hospital

CentraCare – Monticello Hospital has a long history of supporting the health and wellness of our community. Opening as the Monticello – Big Lake Community Hospital in 1965 as a community effort to have a hospital close to home, we have grown to deliver enhanced care locally through state- of-the art technology, expert and caring providers, education-focused programs and patient-centered services. We continue our tradition of partnering to meet the unique health care needs of the community.

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.
