Supporting Cancer Care

Volunteers play a significant role in helping patients with cancer. In addition to contributing their time and energy, volunteers offer support, courage, solace and joy to our patients, their loved ones and our staff. They also help behind the scenes in so many ways — from playing soothing music in the lobby to assisting in the pharmacy to crafting gifts, such as hats and scarves.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Volunteer Services at 320-255-5638 or email

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

Lymphoma: Raine's Story Supporting Cancer Care Patient Story
"I was lucky enough to develop a condition that led to a required colonoscopy. I wasn’t yet fifty and wouldn’t have elected to get one. However, that led to early detection of my cancer and I believe saved my life. There is no reason to wait or put it off."
