Advancing Health in Our Communities.

Feeling Good MN is an initiative by CentraCare Health that works with partnering organizations to improve the health of our communities by changing policies, systems and environments. We look to build on the success of existing health improvement programs by bringing everyone together—under one umbrella—to collaborate in a way that will strengthen our communities.

Powered by CentraCare Health.

CentraCare Health is a not-for-profit health care system that provides comprehensive, high-quality care to people throughout Central Minnesota, while seeking to enhance individual and community health. With partner organizations and existing programs, we work to help make it easier for people to make healthier choices.

It’s estimated that 80% of what drives health outcomes happens outside hospital and clinic walls.
