    What I Do
    I believe the words of the old proverb that “It takes a whole village to raise a child.” I feel honored to share in this amazing responsibility. As a pediatrician, I work with families to help children develop and maintain healthy habits. I enjoy seeing a diverse population of people with hometown values. My special clinical interests include international adoption and ADHD.

    Why I Love My Work
    I was motivated to go into medicine because I love helping people and learning something interesting every day. I chose to specialize in pediatrics because children are energizing, resilient people with unique challenges. Building relationships with children and parents is what I enjoy most about my job. I joined CentraCare because they have a reputation for providing compassionate, comprehensive care.

    Getting to Know Me
    I have three kids, with an 11-year age difference between the oldest and youngest. My daughter was adopted from India. Outside of work, I like walking, cross country skiing and relaxing at the lake with friends and family.

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
