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.

CentraCare Hospitalist Program

What Does a Hospitalist Do?

Think of the hospitalist as your hospital doctor — the person who will oversee your medical care and refer you for other services as necessary.

Our hospitalist works closely with your primary care provider and provides updates on any changes in your health. When you leave the hospital, the hospitalist will give your doctor an overview of your hospital stay and instructions for further care.

What Are the Benefits of Being Referred to a Hospitalist?

Studies show that hospitalist programs improve quality and consistency of care. Hospitalists help to coordinate your care with other members of the health care team. Since they are at the hospital around the clock, they are readily available to meet your family members, answer questions and provide community resources.
