Michael A. SLAMA M.D. Obituary
Age 53 Of Coon Rapids Mike spent his entire career as an Ob-gyn working in the Twin Cities, primarily in the northern suburb of Coon Rapids and the area surrounding Mercy Hospital. He was educated and trained at the University of St. Thomas in Biology, University of MN as a Doctor of Medicine, and the University of Kansas to become specialized as an Obstetrician/ Gynecologist. He spent his entire 23 professional years as a Women's Health Clinician and shepherded countless new lives into the world. However, Mike was also a leader. Early in his career he became a lead physician for Coon Rapids Women's Health. He then progressively took on more responsibility including Divisional Medical Director for the Allina Medical Clinics, Chief-of-Staff Elect for Mercy Hospital and finally one of the Allina Health top physician leaders as President of the Mother-Baby Clinical Service line. He leaves a great legacy culminating in the recent opening of the joint Abbott-Northwestern/Mpls Children's Mothers Baby Center and the approval of a similar mother baby center for Mercy Hospital where he practiced medicine day and night, was a leader for the Hospital and chose it as his final place to depart from this world.
