    What I Do
    I believe in providing holistic care where I work with people to create a personalized plan of care that promotes physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. My clinical interest is high-risk pregnancy care.

    Why I Love My Work
    I have been working in women’s health care my entire career, starting as a nursing assistant. After becoming a registered nurse, I worked with women in gynecology, obstetrics, antepartum and postpartum. Knowing that I had found my purpose, I chose to continue my education and become a women’s health nurse practitioner. Working with women experiencing high-risk pregnancies is rewarding and challenging. The best part about my job is meeting people and getting to know them.

    Getting to Know Me
    I was born and raised in Iowa. After spending some time in Illinois and Wisconsin, I put roots down in Minnesota and have lived here for over 15 years. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and kids. We like to bike, watch football, and Twins baseball. I also like to run, hike, sew, and crochet.

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
