    "As a trauma surgeon, I provide personalized care for patients throughout their entire recovery process. I feel it is important to offer each patient individualized care and the treatment they deserve. I stay up-to-date in the latest technologies to provide patients with the expertise they can rely on."

    Dr. Kuhl is originally from Waukesha, WI, and his wife is from Yankton, SD. They chose Central Minnesota to raise their family because St. Cloud is almost half way between both sets of grandparents! Dr. Kuhl enjoys tennis, golf and spending time with his family. They are active members of the Messiah Lutheran Church in Sartell. And since he was born in Wisconsin, he is a Packer shareholder, but please don’t hold that against him!

Articles from Mitchell Kuhl

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
