Health Care



"Good health and good sense are two of life's greatest blessings." - Publius Syrus, 42 B.C.

No city with mediocre healthcare ever became great. Proudly, Portage residents have access to health care that rivals the best anywhere. The City of Portage historic connection to pharmaceuticals and medical devices is an important reason the area has attracted some of the best and brightest in the health care industry. Major national health care leaders Pfizer and Stryker and several distinguished biomedical companies have a presence in the region.

When it comes to quality of care for citizens, area resources are second to none. Regional health care providers Bronson and Borgess have distinguished themselves on a national level in both quality of care and pioneering innovations that have been adopted nationwide. Access to good health care may be the responsibility of government, but it is also good sense for this healthy community.
