Patient Stories - Diabetes Care

Wayne Carson

“I would like to thank CentraCare for giving me a chance,” Wayne said. “In order to learn and improve I needed to see it, hear it and respond to it. That’s exactly what they offered me – visuals, one-one-one learning and practice.”

Mark Daniels

“They treated me like an individual, not like a number,” he said. “Christina helped me customize a food plan that worked best for me. She listens to me and respects my ideas and input. She often sends me links on topics she knows will interest me or recipes she thinks I’d like. I know that she really cares.”

Steve Wischmann

"I knew I did not want to be insulin-dependent forever. I got connected with CentraCare Diabetes Center and they taught me everything — from counting carbs to proper exercise, to diet and a healthy new routine. I lost over 100 pounds and I am now completely off all diabetic medications and insulin.”

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
