​​​​Jan. 17, 2023

MARQUETTE, Mich. and IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. – Marquette Internal Medicine and Pediatric Associates (MIMPA), and Marshfield Medical Center-Dickinson have signed a Letter of Intent for the Marquette-based clinic to join Marshfield. The agreement brings Marquette's most prominent independent healthcare provider practice together with Marshfield to continue to provide the needed Primary Care, Internal Medicine, Pediatric, and Neurological clinical services to the residents of the Upper Peninsula.

“This is a fantastic development for our team and the local community," said John P. Bartlett, MD, President of Marquette Internal Medicine and Pediatric Associates. “Our shared commitment to delivering top-quality patient-centered care, where and when needed, is why we chose Marshfield as a partner. The collaboration allows us to continue to provide the personal level of care that our patients are accustomed to while also receiving the additional resources and support needed to navigate today's somewhat volatile healthcare landscape."

The partnership will focus on continuing to deliver expert clinical care in the Marquette area while also exploring future growth of services within the region.

Mandy Shelast, Interim President of Marshfield Medical Center-Dickinson, said, “We are excited to welcome the Marquette Internal Medicine and Pediatric Associates (MIMPA) staff to the Marshfield team. MIMPA has an excellent reputation for providing exceptional, compassionate care to the residents of Marquette; we look forward to continuing that tradition of caring for the local community. Marshfield is excited to extend care into Marquette, and we could not have a better partner in this venture than MIMPA to help us grow our presence in Michigan."

The next step is for the organizations to develop a definitive operating agreement, with an anticipated completion date at the end of January. The final closing would occur in March. ​
