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

Carris Health - Redwood’s clinicians and services are ready to serve you at our state-of-the-art campus!

We are excited to announce the completion of our all new, state-of-the-art medical campus, bringing our hospital and clinic under one roof.

Here are just a few of the highlights of our new, 103,000-square-foot campus:

  • Two main corridors that provide easy navigation
  • Easy-to-find Emergency Room
  • MRI inside the building
  • New aquatic therapy pool
  • Larger Rehabilitation department, including a larger gym
  • Larger Surgery department with private prep and recovery spaces
  • State-of-the-art technology to improve care
  • Increased privacy from more waiting areas to white noise
  • Brighter, welcoming walkways and rooms

This project is the result of years of planning, dedicated teams and a commitment to our community members — many of whom played an important role in providing feedback throughout the process. There is a lot to explore on our new campus, and we can’t wait to welcome you into it.

Carris Health - Redwood Eye Care, Pavilion and Seasons will remain in their current locations.
