Center of Everywhere Podcast Cover

In episode 3, research associate Kelly Asche and CRPD CEO Julie Tesch talk with another CRPD board member, Santo Cruz, Vice President for Government & Community Relations and Associate General Counsel for CentraCare Health Systems. CentraCare is headquartered in St. Cloud and provides medical care to a large chunk of central Minnesota. We talked with Santo a few weeks ago for a blog post on how the pandemic is affecting rural communities, but we wanted to have a more in-depth discussion with him on how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting our local hospitals and clinics, and what may have to be done to help our rural health care system survive this.
