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

Mike's Story

Heart & Vascular Care
“Mike had heart problems for years, and until he had bypass surgery he accepted various limitations as part of life.”

“My outcome was as important to them as it was to me.” 

Mike had heart problems for years, and until he had bypass surgery he accepted various limitations as part of life.

Today, Mike is feeling better and is grateful for the care he received at the CentraCare Heart & Vascular Center at St. Cloud Hospital.
