About

Feeling Good MN is an initiative from CentraCare Health that works with partner organizations to improve the health of our communities by changing policies, systems and environments.

It’s estimated that 80 percent of what drives health outcomes happens outside hospital and clinic walls, which is why we are focusing on practical and innovative ways to impact our communities. 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.

What are the goals?

Feeling Good MN is working to build healthy communities by design so that it’s easy to be healthy. By creating a supportive environment, Feeling Good MN can help lower chronic disease rates, reduce healthcare costs and ultimately attract people to live and work in our communities.
