Sauk Centre Surgery

At CentraCare – Sauk Centre, our smaller setting allows for a high level of personalized surgical care.

Each week board-certified surgeons come to Sauk Centre to provide care, oftentimes allowing you to see a surgeon sooner for clinic appointments, scopes and procedures than if you would travel to St. Cloud. These surgeons include podiatrists, orthopedists, otolaryngologists, urologists, gastroenterologists and general surgeons.

The surgery process is standardized across CentraCare so you can be confident in the care you receive. We strive to provide you with the highest quality care in the safest most effective manner. Our operating rooms provide state-of-the-art equipment and instruments.

We offer many procedures, such as:

  • General Surgery

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
