UP Health System acquires surgical robots

UP Health System – Marquette is a 222-bed specialty care hospital in Marquette, Michigan. With more than 200 doctors and 1,800 employees, UPHS cares for approximately 9,000 inpatients and more than 35,000 outpatients each year. Servicing the Marquette area and beyond, UPHS has 42 primary and specialty care clinics spread throughout the region.

Dedicated to Making Communities Healthier, UPHS – Marquette recently acquired the latest innovation in robotic technology for surgeries, which inserts all instruments through one small abdominal incision, improving surgical outcomes and allowing faster patient recovery. The technology has allowed the surgical teams to offer advanced and necessary procedures with a level of accuracy in the hardest-to-reach places.

Gar Atchinson, CEO of UP Health System – Marquette and market CEO for UP Health System, is on the InvestUP Board of Directors.
