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.

Carris Health Breast Imaging Services

State-of-the-Art Mammograms Improve Accuracy

The words “breast cancer” can create considerable anxiety — and understandably so. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women, and one in eight women will receive a diagnosis of breast cancer. We understand the stress you may experience as you get tested and evaluated, and we’re here to reassure you and provide peace of mind.

Carris Health Imaging offers state-of-the-art 3D mammograms. 3D mammograms use the same X-ray technology as “2D” mammograms, however, 3D mammography provides images of the breast in “slices” from many different angles, helping the radiologist see all around and in between the breast tissues, which can mean better cancer detection and fewer false alarms. This is especially valuable for women with dense breasts.

Carris Health in Willmar and Redwood Falls offer 3D mammography as the standard with mammogram appointments. 2D mammograms are still available. While many insurance providers cover 3D mammograms, it is not always covered. We recommend that you check with your insurance provider to find out exactly what is covered under your individual plan.
