COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update Learn More

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

Structural Heart & Valve Clinic

The Structural Heart and Valve Clinic at CentraCare Heart & Vascular Center offers innovative treatment options for a wide range of complex heart issues and abnormalities that can occur at the time of birth or as you age.

We provide safe and effective treatment for those who are low, intermediate or high risk for certain surgical (open heart) valve procedures. As part of an elite group, we provide timely patient care, safe outcomes and patient follow-up from time of initial diagnosis through the first year after the procedure.

Why Choose Us?

  • A multidisciplinary, team-based approach allows us to bring you the best plan of care and advanced technologies.
  • We offer all diagnostic testing and consultation in one location, but also extend some services to our outreach sites where we are able to manage your symptoms and follow your recovery at a site close to where you live.
  • Our program has grown quickly and continues to expand rapidly, making us one of the largest programs in the state. Given our success, we are known throughout Minnesota, the surrounding states and even nationwide for great care and excellent outcomes.
  • We continue to show leadership in our transcatheter treatment options. In fact, our Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) program was ranked as “high performing” in 2021 by U.S. News & World Report.
  • We were the first in the world to use 4D hologram technology to successfully complete a WATCHMAN procedure, reducing procedure time, improving the accuracy of the procedure, reducing risk of complications and hastening recovery.
