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

We Are Committed to Your Long-Term Recovery

Providing immediate care for a traumatic injury is of the utmost importance, but we don’t stop there. After sustaining a traumatic injury, you may experience some long-term difficulties such as limited movement. We have many performance improvement programs designed to facilitate a long-term recovery. As a patient, you will also have access to injury prevention programs, convenient transportation to local facilities that can aid in your recovery, and highly skilled rehabilitation professionals.

From the moment you arrive at the hospital with a traumatic injury, our team will provide the dedicated and personalized care that you need. You will come to know the names and faces of the people treating you, because we firmly believe in maintaining continuity of care so that patients know who to talk to when they have questions or concerns.
