ST. CLOUD -- As another year starts to wind down, members of CentraCare Health are starting to look towards the future.

CentraCare held their 2015 Annual Community report this (Monday) morning at the Rivers Edge Convention Center, to highlight the success they’ve had over the past year.

President and CEO Kenneth Holman says 2015 was a very strong year for CentraCare on many levels.

"Financially we were very strong, our quality results are very strong, our experience results are really good which means we have an organization that is valued by the community and we value our relationship with the community," says Holman.

Looking ahead, there are still areas of improvement. Holman says they want become more cost efficient, improve their quality scores, and grow their relationship with the community.

One of the driving forces behind these improvements is the use of telemedicine which always patients and doctors to interact over computer without physically being in the same room for treatment.

"Telemedicine is really emerging as a major trend for us to take advantage of because it provides quicker, easier, and more convenient health care." says Holman.

CentraCare Health is also working on several other key projects over the next year including the construction of Chateau Waters, and the Emergency Trauma Center entry, and new medical campuses in Long Prairie, Melrose and Albany.

Holman says they value the communities input and can only get better with your help and direction.
