UPHS Welcomes
Dick-Perez, Scott
MARQUETTE — UP Health System-Marquette recently welcomed Dr. Ryan Dick-Perez to its emergency medicine staff, as UPHS-Bell wel- comed Shannon Scott to its pediatric staff.
“With originally being from Alaska, I was looking for a location with lots of snow, small communities and tons of outdoor recreation,” Dick-Perez said in a press release.
Dick-Perez joins an emergency med- icine staff that has the only Level II Trauma Center in the Upper Peninsula. This verification is renewed every three years, and verified trauma centers must meet the essential criteria that ensure trauma care capability and institutional performance, outlined by the American College of Surgeons’ Committee on Trauma in its current Resources for Optimal Care of the Injured Patient manual.
Dick-Perez completed his undergrad- uate degree at Idaho State University with a major in chemistry. He went on to attend Des Moines University College of Osteopathic Medicine and did his three-year emergency medi- cine Residency at Summa Health Systems Akron City Hospital. Dick- Perez also completed his fellowship in anesthesia critical care at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.
Scott is currently accepting patients for well-child exams, acute com- plaints, same-day appointments, con- traceptive counseling and mood disor- der management.
“I love pediatrics and have a soft spot for special needs children and their caregivers as my daughter has a rare genetic disorder,” Scott said. “My care philosophy is collaborative and I look to work with parents and other disci- plines to best manage their medical concerns. I’m flexible and really honor a parent’s intuition.”
Scott is familiar with UPHS after hav- ing completed the majority of her clinical hours at UPHS Pediatric Specialists. She earned her doctorate of nursing practice degree from Northern Michigan University after
earning her licensed practical nursing certification at Gogebic Community College. She is also board certified through the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.
Recently, Scott worked as a Registered Nurse contingent at the Superior Walk-In and Family Health after spending time as a registered nurse contingent at the Vielmetti Health Center.

Faucett Forest Products Becomes Joy Wood Products
PESHTIGO, Wis. — Faucett Forest Products, a sawmill and pallet busi- ness in Peshtigo, has been acquired by Daryl and Maureen Joy and re-named Joy Wood Products.
The producer of wood pallets, crates and skids was in foreclosure and pur- chased at a sheriff’s sale by the Joys, who came across the opportunity in the paper. The sawmill will compli- ment one of their existing businesses, Mountain Woods furniture.
“We are cutting lumber to send out to the plant in Laramie, Wyoming, to make furniture,” Daryl Joy said.
Joy Wood Products retained the eight employees of Faucett, which had been in business since 1970, changing ownership multiple times.
In October, Joy Wood Products was certified to heat treat pallets used in the food manufacturing industry as well as for international export. “All wood packaging materials that are used in international shipping must be heat treated by a certified compa- ny,” Daryl Joy explained.
Joy Wood Products also makes cus- tom-size pallets. The manufacturer primarily serves northeast Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Large orders can be shipped through- out the U.S.
Daryl Joy was in the trucking indus- try for 34 years until Joy Trucking was sold. When he retired from the trans- port industry, he had more than 200 employees and 160 over-the-road trucks.
The Joys bought Mountain Woods Furniture in December 2011. They also own and lease many commercial buildings in the area through Joy Properties. They are lifelong Peshtigo residents and active in the communi- ty.
