Dr. Ronald Skipper will begin seeing patients in Rugby in early January.
Dr. Ronald Skipper, general surgeon, has signed on the dotted line to return to Heart of America Medical Center in Rugby. As a board certified general surgeon, Dr. Skipper will be providing all general outpatient surgeries at Heart of America Surgical Clinic.

Dr. Skipper previously practiced at HAMC from 1997 through 2005. Since then, he's been working as the general surgeon at Central Montana Medical Center in Lewistown, Montana. On his return to Rugby, Dr. Skipper simply says, "It's time."

After receiving his bachelor's degree from Kent State University, Dr. Skipper went on to achieve his doctor of medicine degree from the Ohio State University College of Medicine in Columbus, Ohio. In addition to being a board certified general surgeon, he is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

"We are excited to have a well-known and well-respected physician back at HAMC. We look forward to continuing excellent healthcare services, with the integration of Dr. Skipper and his family back into our community of Rugby," says Jeff Lingerfelt, CEO at HAMC.

Dr. Skipper and his wife have four children, ages 16-24. Dr. Skipper's first day at Heart of America Surgical Clinic will be January 9. Current surgeon Dr. Wallace Kurihara's last day will be January 4.
