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 Foot & Ankle Care

The health of your feet is essential to your well-being. We may not realize the important role our feet play until we develop pain or have difficulties walking. The care from a qualified podiatrist can help you receive an accurate diagnosis and provide a medical or surgical treatment plan to get you back doing the things you enjoy. Podiatrists are also trained to diagnose infections of the foot and toenails or treat foot and ankle complications related to other diseases such as diabetes.

The Carris Health Podiatry department specializes in the treatment of foot and ankle problems in both adults and children.

We provide a range of medical and surgical solutions for a variety of conditions, including:

  • Bunions
  • Heel pain
  • Ingrown or deformed toenails
  • Hammertoes
  • Diabetic foot conditions
  • Fractures of the foot and ankle
  • Achilles tendon conditions
  • Flat or high arched feet
  • Foot supports
  • Skin conditions including warts, growths or wounds

We also provide emergency and after-hours care for fractures and other injuries.
