First Baby At Ripon Medical Center In 10 Years


After a 10-year absence, Ripon Medical Center has welcomed its first baby. Aidan J. Schuster was born on Wednesday, November 13 at 11:55 p.m. to Leah Paczkowski, of Montello, and Louis Schuster, of Princeton. He weighed seven pounds and five ounces, and was 18.5 inches long.

     Steven Sheppard, DO, a board-certified obstetrician/gynecologist with Ripon Medical Center, delivered Aidan J. Schuster.

As the first baby at Ripon Medical Center, Aidan J. Schuster and his family received a basket full of gifts from Ripon Medical Center’s Women & Infants Unit staff.

     “We are excited that this date has arrived,” says Katherine Vergos, Ripon Medical Center chief operating officer. “We have assembled a fantastic team - including Steven Sheppard, our board-certified gynecologist and obstetrician - that is working diligently to provide the highest level of obstetrics care. We know that the Ripon area community has been eager for this important service to return, and we are glad to have made that a reality.”

      Dr. Sheppard joined Ripon Medical Center in June 2013 to help rebuild the service, and is joined by Alisa Vaughn, APNP, and Cynthia Blaylock, APNP, pediatric nurse practitioners.

     As an obstetrician/gynecologist, Dr. Sheppard provides comprehensive healthcare services to women of all ages, including pregnancy and childbirth, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the female reproductive system, and management of perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms.

     “I made the decision to join Agnesian HealthCare because I was excited about helping to rebuild an obstetrics and gynecology program in a hospital that has not had this service for some time,” according to Dr. Sheppard. “This is an exciting time for us, and we are pleased to bring this service to residents in the Ripon and surrounding communities.”
