CentraCare Health - Monticello

New River Medical Center will officially join the CentraCare Health family on April 1, 2013 and become CentraCare Health – Monticello.

Since January, CentraCare has operated New River Medical Center under a management agreement signed by both organizations.  On April 1, lease and affiliation agreements will go into effect formally affiliating New River Medical Center with CentraCare.

“We are pleased to welcome the local medical center into the CentraCare family,” said Jim Davis, CentraCare’s vice president for corporate services.  “This affiliation signifies a new era for CentraCare as we expand the reach of our health care mission and a new era for local medical care as CentraCare embraces the health needs of area patients and communities.”

CentraCare has a long history of investing in the health of the local community through Big Lake Clinic, Monticello Cancer Center, CentraCare Kidney Program – Big Lake Dialysis and St. Benedict’s Senior Community – Monticello.  When New River Medical Center transitions to CentraCare Health – Monticello, patients, families and members of the community will benefit from CentraCare’s history and tradition of health care excellence.

“CentraCare was very thoughtful in their decision to transition the organization to CentraCare Health – Monticello,” said Davis.  “We recognize that it may take time to grow accustomed to the new name, but we are confident this name communicates CentraCare’s commitment to this community and demonstrates CentraCare’s pledge to strengthen and grow your local health care services.”
