    Biography

    What I Do
    My philosophy of care is a collaborative approach to patient care that utilizes best practices. I take my time to listen to patients and their family members about their needs and concerns. I stay up to date on the latest research to create a shared plan of care that promotes an optimal level of health. My clinical interests include preventive medicine and promotion and maintenance of a healthy lifestyle.

    Why I Love My Work
    What I love most about my work is the relationships I build, not only with patients and families but also with colleagues. I believe the cornerstone of exceptional healthcare are having mutually respectful and trusting relationships.

    I chose CentraCare because it was important to me to join a team committed to excellence. I believe wholeheartedly in CentraCare's values of providing personalized, compassionate care. I am excited to be able to provide rural Minnesotans like myself, with exceptional specialty care that is close to home.

    Getting to Know Me
    Outside of work, I enjoy being outdoors, camping, gardening, and fishing. My favorite escape is spending time with my family and friends on vacations, hiking out West or soaking in the beautiful Canadian scenery.

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
