    What I Do
    My philosophy of care is prevention is better than a cure. Medicine provides me the opportunity to practice in a dynamic that allows me to have a trusting relationship with my patients that is unlike any other profession. My special clinical interests are in men’s health, adolescent health, and infectious diseases.

    Why I Love My Work
    The best part of my work is my colleagues and my patients. I appreciate the opportunity to practice in a specialty that provides a real opportunity to connect with patients and allows me to partner with them on a journey to achieving good health.

    Getting to Know Me
    Outside of work I enjoy Capoeira, dance, art history, baseball, softball, running, and traveling.

    I chose CentraCare for the opportunity to practice Family Medicine in a manner that reflects the original philosophy of the specialty, caring for the whole of the patient.

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
