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.

Project H.E.A.L.

Helping Central Minnesota Residents Overcome Barriers to Health Care

Don’t let the lack of health insurance — or not having good coverage — stop you from seeking medical care when you need it.

Project H.E.A.L. (Health, Education, Access, Link) is an outreach program of outreach program of CentraCare Coordinated Care Services. Project H.E.A.L. offers free health screenings and basic care at various locations across Central Minnesota for those who have little or no insurance.

The goal of Project H.E.A.L. is to overcome the barriers to health care for the under-served population of our communities. We help people overcome the barriers of transportation, inadequate or lack of insurance, financial resources for co-payments and medications, language and culture. None of these should stand in the way of you and your family receiving the quality medical care you need.
