    Why I Love My Work
    What I enjoy most about my job is caring for patients during what can be the most vulnerable time in their lives.

    Before I became a nurse anesthetist, I worked as a registered nurse in the ICU at CentraCare – St. Cloud Hospital. The organization as a whole and my coworkers were truly amazing. Seeing the care provided, teamwork, and being part of the positive environment is what brought me back to CentraCare.

    Getting to Know Me
    I love the outdoors and spending time with family. We enjoy hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, four-wheeling, and any adventures!

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
