    What I Do
    I will always treat my patients with compassion, dignity, and respect. I communicate with my patients and their families in a clear and timely manner while providing accurate information about their condition or diagnosis. I respect my patients’ individual preferences, needs, and values. My clinical interests include hospital medicine and critical care.

    Why I Love My Work
    Internal Medicine is a field with a lot of variety which requires the ability to think deeply about diagnosis and treatment and to connect with patients of all ages, backgrounds, and conditions. The opportunities to care for patients in hospital and clinic settings complement my professional, personal, and intellectual goals.

    I enjoy working with my colleagues who are dedicated, supportive, and trustworthy. Being one of the largest health systems in Minnesota, CentraCare has a large group of hospital medicine providers with well-structured organization. Central Minnesota is a diverse community with rural and underserved backgrounds.

    Getting to Know Me
    Outside of work, I enjoy playing and watching soccer, and long walks around the beautiful parks and lakes in Minnesota.

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
