    What I Do
    As a Family Medicine provider, I care for people of all ages. I work with my patients to make sure they understand their health conditions. Together, we can develop a plan for healthy living, disease prevention and stabilizing chronic conditions.

    Why I Love My Work
    I was motivated to go into medicine because I wanted to help people enhance their health and well-being. What I enjoy most about my job is the opportunity to help people make changes with their health and seeing the positive outcomes and improved quality of life.

    Getting to Know Me
    I grew up in Central Minnesota and I am excited to take care of people in my community. When I am not at work, I stay busy with my husband and four children. We like to be outside and enjoy activities like fishing, swimming, and camping.

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
