Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare and Carris Health 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 helps 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

Our Best Begins with Me

A strong culture doesn’t just happen. It’s made possible when employees share a set of core beliefs, commit to supporting one another, and are supported by the organization to be their best self. This means that regardless of the role or position, employees feel comfortable sharing ideas, asking questions and supporting each other to provide the best care and experiences for our patients.

Every employee at CentraCare and Carris Health has the opportunity to experience Our Best Begins with Me through an experiential learning session at the start of their employment. And all employees get to experience the culture through innovative ways employees connect with one another through shared stories and inspiration, opportunities to collaborate, and access to resources that support their journey.
