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

Speech Therapy

Whether you have a physical challenge or cognitive challenge, sometimes our mouth doesn’t do what we need it to do. Carris Health speech therapists use a variety of specialized tools to help you with speech/language, cognitive and swallowing difficulties.

Speech therapy can help people of all ages, from birth to older adults to help you:

  • Communicate
  • Process sounds
  • Develop memory and thinking skills
  • Swallow safely

Your speech therapy care plan may involve speaking and therapeutic exercises, use of specialized diagnostic equipment, augmentative communication devices, and education for adaptation and ongoing independent care. Our speech language pathologists can also work with caregivers to provide communication tips that can help ease everyday challenges.
