UP Health System - Portage
has a new emergency department physician on board.
Dr. Tara Robinette, originally from Swartz Creek, Michigan, joined the Hancock hospital's emergency department this month and began seeing patients. She is a board-certified emergency medicine physician and earned her medical degree at Michigan State University in 2011.
Since then, she has also completed a residency at the University of Michigan/St. Joseph Mercy emergency medicine program, which included some work at Portage previously.
"I have completed rotations in the ED here at Portage during my residency and know that it is a great place to work," Robinette says. "I enjoy the ED because you make a quick difference in a patient's life and work in a fast-paced environment."
She was already familiar with the area, having earned her undergraduate degree in biology and pre-medicine from Michigan Technological University in 2007.
