Research & Clinical Trials

Helping Yourself And Others

If you’d like to explore additional possibilities for the treatment of cancer — either to help yourself today or others in the future — we can provide that option. The Coborn Cancer Center offers access to various clinical trials, or research studies, that can help identify better ways to treat, diagnose and prevent cancer so that people can live better and longer. Clinical trials are approved by the National Cancer Institute and include the highest standard of care. If you’re interested and would like to learn more about eligibility for a clinical trial, call us at 320-229-4900.

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
