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.

Comprehensive Care for the Whole Family

No matter your age, sex, or stage of life, a family medicine physician is an important member of your health and wellness team. A family medicine physician provides a wide range of services that fall under the heading of “general medicine.” These services might include family planning, health education, immunizations, treating minor diseases and injuries, checkups for children and adults, screening tests and diagnosing disease.

Some family physicians provide pregnancy and delivery care. They provide well child checkups and can make sure all immunizations are up to date. Family physicians also can coordinate and manage patient care with other specialists when a referral is needed.
