    What I Do
    As a Cancer Care Coordinator, I work with your medical team and you to ensure appropriate work up and timely appointment are scheduled.  I help you navigate the medical system and understand your diagnosis, treatment plan and prognosis.

    I will listen, meet you where you are at, and together, we will move forward in your journey. My clinical interests include GI, head, and neck cancers.

    Why I Love My Work
    What I enjoy most about my job is helping people during their greatest time of need as they navigate the uncharted waters of cancer. My entire career has been in oncology. I have a passion for cancer patients and find this work to be enormously rewarding.

    Getting to Know Me
    Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family, kayaking, hiking, reading, sauna, and gardening.

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
