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.

Heart & Vascular

Cardiology in Willmar and Redwood Falls

There are a number of reasons you may need to visit a cardiologist. Perhaps you're experiencing heart pain, have a family history of heart disease, or have high cholesterol or high blood pressure. Cardiologists specialize in diagnosing and treating diseases of the cardiovascular system. They may carry out tests and possibly do some procedures, such as heart catheterizations, angioplasty or pacemaker placements.

At Carris Health, we partner with CentraCare Heart & Vascular to bring exceptional heart care to our region. Learn more about CentraCare Heart & Vascular and why U.S. News & World Report ranked this program better than all Twin Cities hospitals for cardiology and heart surgery.
