New emergency room doctor at St. Mary’s

Dr. Rachel Redig has joined the Emergency Department at Essentia Health-St. Mary’s in Detroit Lakes.

“I appreciate the trust and faith that patients put in me as their doctor,” she said. “I strive each day to uphold that commitment by caring for them to the best of my ability.”

Dr. Redig says no two days are the same in emergency medicine. “You get to treat everyone, from babies to the elderly,” she says. “You get to help people at the time they need it most.”

She grew up in Staples and graduated from Staples Motley High School in 2002.

She earned her medical degree from the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences in Grand Forks, N.D.

Dr. Redig served a residency in emergency medicine at the Grand Rapids Medical Education and Research Center in Grand Rapids, Mich.
