    Biography

    Dr. Shah specializes in all areas of hematology and oncology and has an emphasis in lung/thoracic cancer, lymphoma (Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin), chronic lymphocytic leukemia, multiple myeloma (and other plasma cell disorders) and bleeding/clotting disorders.

    Dr. Shah believes that the patient is the forefront and center of all cancer management. Using evidence-based medicine and available clinical trials, she works with her patient’s care team and the patient to develop personalized care plans to manage the patients’ condition.

    Her experience has shown that while every patient has different goals and beliefs, each of them deserve the best care possible. Dr. Shah’s patients are an integral part of the care team and it is an honor for her to be part of the patient’s journey through these difficult times.

    In her free time, Dr. Shah and her husband spend time with family, traveling, hiking, and camping. She also enjoys doing yoga and watching sports – especially football!

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
