Shawn Heiler, PA-CPortage Health is pleased to announce that Shawn Heiler, PA-C, has joined the medical staff to work in the emergency department and Express Care.

Heiler comes to the Copper Country after spending his entire professional career in metropolitan southeast Michigan.

His visit to Portage Health helped him to make his decision to make the trip north.

“Everything about Portage Health seems great,” said Heiler. “The emergency department has a lot to offer for being a rural hospital. It has all the things I need to make sure my patients are taken care of.”

Jim Bogan, president and CEO of Portage Health, said Heiler will be a great fit.

“We look forward to working with Shawn as a member of our emergency, trauma and urgent care team,” said Bogan.

Heiler has already begun working in the emergency department, and will also spend time at Express Care.

While Heiler adapts to his new professional surroundings, he’s already taken a liking to his physical surroundings.

“It’s beautiful up here,” he said. “It’s great for outdoors people like my wife and I.”
