    What I Do
    My philosophy of care centers on evidence-based medicine, patient comfort, and above all, safety. My goal is to provide patients with a comprehensive understanding of why specific anesthetic medications and techniques are utilized for their procedure. My clinical interests are anesthesia for cardiac, thoracic, and vascular procedures, and performing perioperative transesophageal echocardiography.

    Why I Love My Work
    I enjoy the high-acuity nature and procedural aspects of anesthesiology in addition to the broad-spectrum of patients I care for. I also love contributing to the team-based approach of the operating room.

    Getting to Know Me
    Outside of work I enjoy playing and watching soccer, traveling, hiking, making/drinking espresso, and all things on the ocean including surfing and bodysurfing.

    I am diligent and detail oriented. I will always strive to ensure patient comfort and safety through what can be a very stressful period.

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
