Essentia Health Welcomes Dr. Leah Heron

Leah Heron, MD Emergency Medicine

Dr. Leah Heron, an emergency medicine physician, has joined Essentia Health-St. Mary’s Medical Center in Duluth, Minnesota.

“I’m from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, so I grew up near Lake Superior and it’s great to be here in Duluth,” says Dr. Heron. “I was looking for an opportunity in a smaller city with access to outdoor activities, so this is a perfect fit.”

Dr. Heron earned a medical degree from Michigan State University College of Human Medicine in East Lansing, Michigan. She completed a residency in emergency medicine at Beaumont Health System in Royal Oak, Michigan.

“I love the variety of people I get to take care of in the emergency room – it’s a unique experience to be able to take care of anyone who walks through the door,” explains Dr. Heron.
