    What I Do
    I believe in a whole-body approach to caring for my patients. Every part of our body is linked together and we cannot work to improve one area without considering the whole body. My special clinical interest is in caring for patients who have experienced a stroke.

    Why I Love My Work
    I always knew I wanted to help people. Working in health care as a registered nurse and nurse practitioner has given me the opportunity to serve and help my patients. I have worked with neurological patients for my entire career. Now, in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, I have the opportunity to see my patients from the time they are in the hospital and after they have returned home. What I enjoy most about my job is seeing patients succeed and improve from one day to the next.

    Getting to Know Me
    My husband and I are both from the Midwest but before we came to Central Minnesota we were living in Buffalo, NY. We like the small-town feel that this area has. Outside of work, we enjoy spending time with our two young daughters.

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
