    What I Do
    I believe in meeting patients where they are at in life and setting realistic, attainable goals. In order to achieve these goals, it’s important to have a positive environment created on a foundation of trust and good communication. My clinical interests include health promotion and prevention.

    Why I Love My Work
    I started my career as a registered nurse and enjoyed the opportunity to work bedside at CentraCare – Heart and Vascular Center. My goals of being able to do more for my patients and to help them prevent illness or catch things sooner, led me to pursue a career advancement as a nurse practitioner.

    My experiences with my family’s trucking company lend well to my career in occupational medicine and have helped me to understand and relate to the needs of our business partners. What I enjoy most about my job is getting to see patients from different backgrounds and working with great people.

    Getting to Know Me
    I was born and raised in Central Minnesota. I appreciate it for the small-town communities and their people but also for the ease of access and resources that come along with living in an area like St. Cloud.

    Outside of work, I enjoy being on the lake and family time with my husband, our two kids, and two dogs. We also like riding ATVs on the Iron Range, reading, cooking, and grilling.

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
