Harbor Beach Community Hospital Welcomes New Physician

Harbor Beach Community Hospital is proud to announce the addition of Dr. Laura Parks to our medical team! Dr. Parks earned her Bachelors of Science in 2014 and her Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine in 2018 from Michigan State University. She is currently completing her residency at Beaumont Health in Troy, Michigan, and will graduate this June.

Dr. Parks and her husband, Mitchell, are excited to make Harbor Beach home. No stranger to a rural community, Dr. Parks grew up on a dairy and cash crop farm in Corunna, Michigan. Growing up, she was very active in the agriculture community and participated in both 4H and FFA. Dr. Parks and Mitchell will be relocating to the area after her graduation. “Although I have enjoyed my time spent in busy southeast Michigan,” said Parks,” I am looking forward to returning to a rural community. I love having a sense of 'home' in the places I live and work, and I know I will find that in Harbor Beach.” Both Dr. Parks and her husband have fallen in love with the Harbor Beach Community and all the scenic views the area has to offer.

“I love that family medicine allows me to care for all patients from birth to geriatrics,” said Parks. Two services in particular she is extremely passionate about are working with children and providing women’s health services. “I love working with kids,” said Parks. She will be offering well-baby and well-child visits, as well as seeing children for any general medical concerns or illnesses. Dr. Parks also enjoys providing women’s health care services ranging from annual exams to family planning and everything in between.

Dr. Parks will offer a full scope of family medicine services at the Harbor Beach Medical Clinic beginning in July of 2021.The Harbor Beach Medical Clinic is conveniently located on the hospital’s main campus and will remain home to Dr. Bradley and Amanda Cook, FNP’s family medicine services as well as Dr. Behan’s orthopedic services clinic.

Please help us extend a big welcome to Dr. Laura Parks as she settles into the community and the Harbor Beach Hospital Healthcare system! Harbor Beach Community Hospital is proud to be your safe harbor for great healthcare!
