    What I Do
    I pride myself on treating each patient and encounter uniquely. I spend my time with each patient to understand and recognize their experiences, goals, and expectations of care. By doing so, I hope to help my patients get the care they are looking for at each visit.

    A few of my clinical interests include men’s health, children’s health, and mental health. Men’s health and mental health are areas that can sometimes be overlooked, and I enjoy helping patients understand their health conditions and care options.

    Why I Love My Work
    Growing up in rural Minnesota, I recognized many disparities that affect these areas including convenient access to health care services. I am here to help reduce disparities and bring services to local communities. Part of being in family practice is the ability to recognize and treat many conditions. I stay up-to-date and follow evidence-based practices to help my patients get the best outcomes.

    Getting to Know Me
    I grew up and have worked in rural central Minnesota most of my life. I have many shared values and beliefs that are the foundation of these communities. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and son. I stay active camping and hiking throughout Minnesota’s county, state, and national forests. My other hobbies include fishing, target shooting, hunting, snowmobiling, and traveling.

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
