    Biography

    What I Do
    I believe in a patient-focused approach with kindness, compassion, empathy, and an open mind. I am passionate about understanding each patient as an individual and helping them cope with their diagnosis. I tailor treatment approaches to meet the specific needs and goals of my patients. My special clinical interests are in solid and hematologic malignancies.

    Why I Love My Work
    I was motivated to become a physician by my mother, who has been a nurse for over 40 years. She instilled in me the importance of service and compassion.

    A diagnosis of cancer can change one’s life in an instant. I am dedicated to helping my patients and their families through the hardest time of their life. Hematology and oncology are ever-changing, with newer therapies constantly on the horizon. My goal is to translate these advances to improve the lives of patients and their families.

    Getting to Know Me
    Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and being outdoors.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to help us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.

Ken Holmen, MD
President and CEO
