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.”

Rebecca Baudoin MugHANCOCK – Portage Health is pleased to welcome Dr. Rebecca Baudoin to its women’s health team.

Dr. Baudoin attended the University of Minnesota for medical school and is heading to the Copper Country after finishing her residency at the same institution. She will join Dr. Julie Meyer in providing complete care for women of all ages.

“Dr. Baudoin’s arrival provides another choice for women seeking specialized services,” said Jim Bogan, CEO/president of Portage Health. “She complements our other providers very well, improving the quality of care available.”

“My goal is to provide comprehensive obstetric and gynecological care to women at all stages of life,” said Baudoin. “From adolescence through childbearing to menopause and beyond.”

Baudoin has a full array of services to offer such as minimally invasive surgical options, including several office-based procedures.

“Because interactions in OB/GYN are deeply personal, I place an emphasis on partnering with my patients to tailor specific care plans for individual needs,” Baudoin said.

Baudoin is set to begin on Wednesday, Sept. 14. Appointments can be made now by calling (906) 483-1050.
