    What I Do
    As a physician assistant in the CentraCare Heart & Vascular Center, I care for patients with complex medical and surgical conditions that have cardiovascular implications. I am especially interested in innovative cardiovascular interventions and advancing health care. I believe in caring for patients as a whole and caring for patients as individual people. Doing so will help them to better achieve wellness and improved quality of life.

    Why I Love My Work
    I began my work in health care as a clinical dietitian due to my interest in promoting health and wellness. I was also hungry to understand how the body works. I found that the heart is the engine of the body and that improving its health, can improve the quality of life that patients enjoy. I find it fulfilling to provide my patients with the highest quality of care. I am a perfectionist, and I believe my patients deserve the best I can deliver.

    Getting to Know Me
    I enjoy time outdoors, physical activity, adventures with family and friends and being the best mom I can be. As a native to Central Minnesota, I want to serve and use my skills to give back to the community I grew up in. I am particularly interested in agriculture and farming and enjoy the camaraderie found in rural communities. Cows happen to be my favorite animal!

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
