Dr. Mark Povich

Dr. Mark Povich graduated from Alma College in Michigan, attended medical school at Michigan State University and did his residency in family medicine in Lansing.

Then it was goodbye to Michigan, for a while anyway, and hello Minot, North Dakota to fulfill his US Air Force obligation.

Born and raised in Saginaw, Dr. Povich was happy to return to his home state, eventually joining the OSF family in 1995. “I love establishing long-term relationships and caring for people,” he says. “Many of the babies I delivered I now see as teens.”

As Medical Staff President, Dr. Povich divides his time between seeing patients and performing administrative duties. He directs the medical staff at our various clinics, works together with them to improve quality and is active in recruiting new physicians. “It keeps me going!” he says.

Dr. Povich and his wife Carol met in college and have been married for over 35 years. They are the parents of nine children, ranging in age from 33 to 13.
