• About our community

    Portage Health is located in Michigan's beautiful Upper Peninsula and is uniquely positioned in the midst of the area affectionately known as the Keweenaw Peninsula. This peninsula pierces the southern shoreline of the largest freshwater lake in the world — Lake Superior — and is surrounded by miles of scenic shoreline, rugged cliffs and the endless beauty of the northwoods.

    Borne out of the copper mining boom of the 1800's, the immediate and surrounding communities of nearly 50,000 people presents a nice blend of historic charm with modern innovation and technology. Portage Health and its employees also benefit from the academic and cultural resources contributed by two local institutions of higher education — Michigan Technological University and Finlandia University.

    Our warm, family-oriented community offers nationally recognized public schools, a thriving arts scene and boundless outdoor recreation opportunities afforded by our four-season climate. In fact, within many of the city limits in Houghton and Keweenaw counties, you will find world-class recreational opportunities which include alpine ski hills; a comprehensive Nordic ski trail system which has hosted several national and regional race events; lakes and streams for boating, fishing, kayaking and simple enjoyment; incredible single-track and back-country bike trails; and a snowmobile trail system which traverses some of the most breathtaking and highly-acclaimed scenery in the country. Additionally, the area is home to several golf courses, state-owned parks and serves as the gateway to the Isle Royale National Park. Most major Midwest cities are within reasonable driving distance and the Houghton County Memorial Airport, just a few miles away, services our area with daily flights to Chicago.

    Your experience at Portage Health will provide you with more than just a quality practice — it will provide you with a quality of life.
