    Biography

    What I Do
    I believe in providing individualized care to my patients as I help them understand and manage their neurological illnesses. Together, we set goals that achieve the best outcome possible and maximize their quality of life.

    Why I Love My Work
    My favorite part about my role is the focus on stroke prevention and patient education. I started working at CentraCare in 2013 as a new graduate RN on the Neuroscience and Spine unit at CentraCare - St. Cloud Hospital. After working for several years to care for people with neurological conditions, I knew I had found my calling and chose to pursue career advancement to become a nurse practitioner.

    Getting to Know Me
    Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, friends, and family. We like watching and playing sports, traveling, biking, hiking, and downhill skiing.

    Growing up in central Minnesota, I am excited to be able to provide specialized neurological care in a large hospital that is close to home.

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
