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

Note from the Director

Maintaining our Mission

Members of the St. Cloud Hospital Residency Program believe in the benefits of creating a culture of teamwork. We strive to be true to this mission and have constructed aspects of our residency program to cultivate collaboration within our residency class and preceptor group. Examples of this include our annual day-long residency retreat (with all preceptors and residents) focused on resident and preceptor development sessions and team building exercises. Throughout the year, residents work with the Residency Program Director to create fun pharmacy outings by participating in our Residency Emotional Support Team (REST) committee. Lastly, our block rotational experiences are designed to allow many preceptors and clinical staff to collaborate to affect resident day-to-day development. We believe the St. Cloud Hospital Residency Program is a challenging, multifaceted and fulfilling residency experience made possible by our team approach to learning and training. Come join our pharmacy team!
