    What I Do
    I strive to create trusting relationships with my patients so we can work as a team to optimize their health. My clinical interests include preventative care, chronic disease management, procedures, and tobacco treatment.

    Why I Love My Work
    I have known since I was a child that I wanted to work in medicine. I have always had an interest in science and health. I enjoy family medicine because I can care for people of all ages. Family medicine is different than some other specialties because of the opportunity to focus on both preventing and managing diseases. The best part of my job is seeing positive changes in my patients’ health.

    Getting to Know Me
    I appreciate the opportunity to serve people in the same community where I live and raise my family. Outside of work, I spend most of my time with my husband and two sons. We enjoy outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, and boating on the lake. My personal interests include reading, baking, and home improvement projects.

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
