Our Best for You
CentraCare Health prides itself on supporting the needs of people throughout Central Minnesota. Whether it’s through care provided at hospitals and clinics across the region, or from partnerships with organizations that help make a positive difference in our communities, CentraCare is committed to improving health.
But improving health takes more than hospitals and partnerships. It requires building an organizational culture that supports our team’s ability to provide exceptional care to every patient, at every stage, every day. This is no small task when you consider CentraCare employs 10,000 staff at dozens of locations spread across hundreds of miles.
CentraCare is working to reshape its culture by working with staff to make sure everyone has the tools and talents needed to be their best. By the end of 2017, the vast majority of CentraCare employees will have gone through training, which includes expectations for how we work together as a team and how we treat patients.
Ultimately, we are making this investment so we can provide our best for you. You may even see the phrase “Our Best For You” throughout our facilities. When you do, know this is more than just a slogan. It’s a commitment to providing care that is remarkable, because it was everything you needed and more. It means listening to your needs. It means being present in the moment, free of distractions. It means working together to coordinate your care and it also means being accountable for our actions.
As an organization, this is an exciting journey. It’s a marathon, not a sprint, and we feel great about the progress we’re making. We’re lucky to have some of the best health care providers in the country working at CentraCare Health. Our hope is that when you interact with members of our team at any of our facilities, you will experience a culture that is striving to give our best for you.
