IRON MOUNTAIN – Dickinson County Health System has officially changed its name to Marshfield Medical Center-Dickinson.
Thursday’s announcement reaffirms a commitment to providing high-quality local health care as Dickinson becomes a regional hub for the Upper Peninsula’s Marshfield Clinic health system, officials said.
“Since joining in February, a lot of work has been done to integrate Dickinson into Marshfield,” said Chuck Nelson, executive director of Marshfield Medical Center-Dickinson. “Part of the process is filing legal name change requests and going through the multiple levels of changing everything with the name and logo. It’s a huge undertaking, but we’ve reached the point where we can ramp up the volume around our new name and brand. We are honored to represent Marshfield at Dickinson and UP, and look forward to a bright future together. Thank you to our teams for all their efforts, hard work and diligence in making this transition a success.
Marshfield Medical Center-Dickinson represents the first time Marshfield will have a physical presence providing care beyond Wisconsin’s borders.
“We have evolved over the past 100 years to get to where we are today,” said Dr. Susan Turney, CEO of Marshfield Clinic Health System. “Moving forward together, we will do more than ever to serve our patients in the rural communities they call home. I am thrilled to call the incredible team at Marshfield Medical Center-Dickinson our colleagues.
One of the main objectives of the partnership is the construction of a new state-of-the-art cancer centre.
