Dr. Katherine "Kate" Skaggs will join High Country Healthcare OB/GYN Specialists in Frisco beginning Sept. 17. Her new role at the practice marks Skaggs' return to the Rocky Mountain region, where she practiced in Vail from 2002 through 2010.
"We are thrilled to add such a beloved practitioner to the High Country Healthcare family," said Rhonda Koehn, CEO. "Our OB/GYN Specialists office is already hearing from former patients of Kate's who are anxious to make appointments to see her."
Skaggs is returning to Colorado after a two-year stint at the University of Wisconsin Health Partners Regional Health Center in Watertown, Wisconsin, where she served as the medical director for women's services. She completed both her undergraduate and medical education at the University of Wisconsin and spent more than 20 years at various posts in the Badger State.
"While I went to school in Wisconsin and spent many years working there, Colorado has always felt like home," Skaggs said. "I look forward to reconnecting with former clients and old friends, and know that my family and I will be welcomed by new ones."
Skaggs' specialties include high-risk pregnancies, urogynecology and general obstetrics and gynecology services. And like many Summit County practitioners, the doctor has embraced service abroad with four medical aid trips to Columbia. She earned her original board certification from the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology in 1993 and was re-certified in 2011.
Skaggs will begin seeing patients in mid-September. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call High Country Healthcare OB/GYN Specialists at (970) 668-5771.
