U.P. hospitals recognized for patient safety

Three U.P. hospitals have been recognized for patient safety—Marshfield Medical Center – Dickinson, UP Health System – Portage, and InvestUP Board Member UP Health System – Marquette.

Our goal through these stories is to get at the heart of what makes the U.P. unique — and to ensure these stories travel beyond our peninsula and broadly illustrate why the UP is the place to live and work.
