Contributions to Community Benefit

As a not-for-profit health care provider, CentraCare Health provides a broad spectrum of benefits to the communities we serve. These funds account for a measurable portion of CentraCare’s cost and help promote healthy lifestyle, community development, health education and affordable access to care.

In 2018, CentraCare invested over $198 million in community benefit activities to improve the health and well-being of patients in our service area.
