    Biography

    Dr. Schaap has an active, busy family. They enjoy volleyball, music, snow skiing, CrossFit and spending time at the cabin. "Born and raised on a farm in Minnesota, Orthopedics seemed to be a good fit within the medical realm," says Dr. Schaap. "It allows me to apply common sense problem-solving and mechanical skills, much like we did growing up. I have lived and worked in Minnesota my entire life. Minnesota is my home, and St. Cloud is one of the best places in the state to be able to live and practice."

    "I believe in understanding patients' symptoms, as well as their goals. While some may be willing to tolerate symptoms to avoid surgery, others will pursue a surgical option. I believe that patients should be allowed to gather information and make choices based on individual needs and concerns." - Dr. Schaap

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
