    What I Do
    I believe that excellent medical care begins with listening. My philosophy of care is to meet patients where they are, to form a partnership with them to promote health, wellness, and hope. My special clinical interests are pediatrics, obstetrics/gynecology, geriatrics, diabetes care, preventative medicine, and addiction medicine.

    Why I Love My Work
    Each patient is unique in their own way, and I enjoy getting to know every person and partnering with them to deliver high-quality medical care. My favorite part about practicing family medicine is getting to know families and serving them across generations.

    I chose CentraCare, after my excellent experience as a family medicine resident in St. Cloud. I am thrilled to have the chance to continue to serve patients in our community while giving back to our residency program.

    Getting to Know Me
    Outside of work, I enjoy staying active by running, playing basketball, soccer, golf, and pickleball. I am an avid reader of both fiction and nonfiction. My wife and I have three children together, and as a family we enjoy playing board games and spending time outdoors.

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
