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

When you experience kidney problems, you will want to have a trustworthy, close-to-home resource for the care you need. We are here to provide you and your family with the best treatment possible.

For patients who have not yet experienced full renal failure, our team will do everything in its power to keep your kidneys functioning and get them back in healthy condition.

The kidney program team includes:

  • Others – renal dietitians, social workers, educators, pharmacists, spiritual care specialists and other team members

Quality You Can Count On

Providing you with the best care possible is our priority. In that effort, we maintain membership in the Renal Network, which sets high benchmarks nephrology services that our team must maintain to continue membership. We have also achieved the 5-Diamon Patient Safety status for all of our dialysis outpatient and inpatient programs, as well as our home therapy program. This is the highest status given by Renal Network.

What drives us to achieve these high standards of quality and care is you. Kidney disease is nothing to take lightly, and we know that our patients are looking for proven medical professionals they can trust to help them manage this difficult condition. The CentraCare Kidney Program has exceeded the expected survival and transplant rates for kidney disease, according to research performed by the investigative journalistic group Pro-Publica in 2012.
