    What I Do
    I am caring, compassionate, and I will work with you to reach your health care goals. I believe in the statement, “If you do not make time for your wellness, you will be forced to make time for your illness,” (unknown). My clinical interests include preventative care, sports medicine, in-office procedures, and cardiology.

    Why I Love My Work
    The field of medicine requires a commitment to lifelong learning and this is one of the things that drew me to it. I chose to specialize in family medicine because I wanted to see patients throughout their lifespan and through a variety of health concerns. The best part about my job is getting to know my patients.

    Getting to Know Me
    I grew up in Central Minnesota and enjoy the community that we have here. Outside of work, I like being outdoors, camping, hiking, and playing soccer or hockey, snowboarding, and spending time with my family. My husband, children, and I love to go camping out West, hike in the mountains and soak-in the beautiful scenery.

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
