The annual Christmas in Christ Chapel worship services at Gustavus evoke wonder through music, poetry, prayer and dance performed by more than 350 students. This year, Christmas in Christ Chapel’s theme is Life Abundant: A Celebration of Christmas during the 500th year of the Reformation.

CentraCare opens quickClinic in Waite Park
Coborn’s Inc. and CentraCare Health have formed a partnership to provide greater access to health care for people living in the St. Cloud area and across Central Minnesota.
Today, CentraCare Health opened a new walk-in clinic, called quickClinic, in the Cash Wise grocery store at 113 Waite Ave. S. in Waite Park. The newly renovated space is open from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. daily, including most holidays, and is conveniently located next to the pharmacy. The quickClinic includes a waiting area and two exam rooms. Two other quickClinics are expected to open in the coming months at other Coborn-owned grocery stores in Foley and Sartell.
“Health care is changing – and so are the needs of our community,” said Ken Holmen, MD, president and CEO of CentraCare Health. “By partnering with those within our community, we can achieve our goal of improving the health of every patient every day by making access to care convenient for those we serve.”
The quickClinic offers treatment for common health-care concerns, including common illnesses, skin conditions, minor injuries and a wide range of vaccinations, wellness screenings and physicals.
“This is about a local grocery company and local health-care provider partnering to further serve the community they both call home,” said Chris Coborn, president, CEO and chairman of the board for Coborn’s Inc. “We know our guests lead busy lives; we are excited to provide this service through our on-going partnership with CentraCare, a trusted organization that has been providing quality local health care to the area for years.”
The Coborn family and Coborn’s, Inc. have been strong supporters of CentraCare’s mission to improve the health of every patient, every day. In 2001, Coborn’s Inc. made a $3 million donation to CentraCare Health System to establish a customized cancer-care center known as the Coborn Cancer Center. In 2016, the Coborn Family Foundation provided a $1 million gift for a cancer survivorship center, which is currently being built next to the Coborn Cancer Center. Dan Coborn, former Coborn’s Inc. CEO and president, provided a $500,000 estate gift to the CentraCare Health Foundation following his passing in March 2017. Chris Coborn is currently a member of the CentraCare Health board of directors.
