• About us

    At Portage Health, improving the health of our community isn't just our job - It's our way of life. We are dedicated to bringing the best people and the best technology together to create an environment conducive to healing and gaining health.

    Portage Health has served the people of the Western Upper Peninsula of Michigan for more than 110 years. We are dedicated to providing quality, compassionate healthcare in a progressive and integrated healthcare environment.

    Portage Health Night ImageAs a community-owned healthcare organization, Portage Health has responded to the call for quality medical care close to home by offering a wide assortment of medical services under one roof. We support a multi-specialty group of nearly 50 physicians and sub specialists which are supported by over a dozen Allied Health Professionals. Our medical group physicians are located in four clinic locations found throughout the community, and include OB/GYN, family medicine, pediatrics, sports medicine, orthopedics, general surgery, geriatrics, internal medicine, rheumatology, pathology, anesthesiology, ENT, ophthalmology, radiology, urology, hematology/oncology and neurology.

    Additionally, we have an inpatient unit of 36 beds where acute care patients are served by physicians specifically trained and experienced in hospitalist medicine. Portage Health also offers a wide range of ancillary services for our patients including the areas only Open Bore MRI, 64-slice CT scanner, PACS, nuclear imaging, digital mammography, and other radiological and laboratory services. Our other services include cardiopulmonary, sleep medicine and a certified sleep disorder lab, regional dialysis unit, pharmacy, physical, occupational therapy, speech therapy, cardiac rehab, audiology, home care and hospice, and a 60-bed senior living community - to name just a few.

    Emergency care is provided by the State of Michigan’s only ACS-verified level III trauma center offering 24 hour physician coverage, staffed by five physicians and three allied health professionals. This coupled with our Express Care walk-in clinic provides immediate access to healthcare services.

    Maintaining and recovering your health is not always about service after-the-fact. Our mission is to improve the health of our community. We work equally hard to provide preventive care and educational workshops for the public to learn how to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle. This is accomplished through our community health services and is an equally important component of the healthcare services offered by Portage Health.
