    What I Do
    I believe it is important for patients to understand their health conditions, why they are important to treat, and what our treatment plan is going forward. I approach medicine from a team-based perspective where my patients and I work together to reach their goals.

    My clinical interests include pediatrics, diabetes, hypertension, orthopedic care and in-office skin and joint procedures.

    Why I Love My Work
    My favorite part about working in a primary care clinic is helping my patients take charge of their health. Working with people is what I enjoy most about my job. Every interaction in medicine is a lesson in empathy and having the opportunity to help my patients through difficult situations is an incredible experience.

    What drew me to CentraCare is its strong commitment to the residents of Central Minnesota, its expanding services, and track-record for excellence.

    Getting to Know Me
    I grew up in the area and I am proud to call Central Minnesota my home. What excites me most about this community is the opportunity to live and practice medicine with the people I interact with every day.

    Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife, son, and friends. Going to “the lake,” hunting whitetails, woodworking and tennis are some things I enjoy.

    I am also a complete fantasy nerd. So, naturally, reading and writing fantasy novels is one of my favorite hobbies. As is anything related to Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Game of Thrones and Magic the Gathering.

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
