A New Podcast Episode About Us

CentraCare Backroads is a new podcast about what connects us to each other, our work, and making a difference in people’s lives. 

What connects us

We’re connected in so many ways. Our new Backroads podcast is just one more way to knit us together.

In this episode, you’ll hear how tragedy and a nurse inspired Lisa Kilgard’s life purpose, and how Dr. Joshua Friese connects with nature to recharge — and give back to others. Plus your voices from The Ledge event.

Those who serve others by providing healthcare have always been a beacon of comfort and hope. Our patients, their families, friends and society as a whole need the caring you provide – now, more than ever.
