    Biography

    What I Do
    I chose family practice because I enjoy caring for the whole family, from infancy to the elderly. In my practice, I combine clinical expertise with an emphasis on health promotion and disease prevention. I work collaboratively with physicians and specialty providers as needed to help my patients manage their health conditions. My goal is for patients to feel they have been treated with respect and received the care they need.

    Why I Love My Work
    I come from a long line of nurses and I was always interested in the different health care roles that nurses can assume. I have worked in hospitals, home care, public health and now I am an experienced family nurse practitioner.

    My job is always interesting and challenging. When my patient has an outcome they are happy with, I am happy too. I am excited to be able to provide care for people in my community.

    Getting to Know Me
    I have always lived in Central Minnesota and I graduated with my undergraduate degree from CSB/SJU. I grew up on a farm raising beef cattle, pigs, chickens, and geese. I have deep roots in Central Minnesota. I enjoy reading, exercise, gardening, and visiting local parks . Another hobby of mine is supporting the local arts community and I have frequented the Paramount Theater and Pioneer Place.

    In the past, I have traveled to Cambodia (for research as a nurse practitioner student), China, Thailand, India, Europe, Central and South America. These travel opportunities have given me the chance to experience different cultures.

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
