Board-certified diagnostic radiologist, George Ripeckyj, MD, joined the Winona Health medical staff.
“After retiring from my practice in Eau Claire, I decided to serve as a visiting physician. That took me to a number of healthcare organizations including Winona Health,” said Dr. Ripeckyj. “I chose to join Winona Health because I enjoyed the people and the focus here. It provides a good work-life balance and opportunity to do the things I enjoy and think are important. I’m also enjoying this gorgeous city.”
Dr. Ripeckyj is certified by the American Board of Radiology. He earned his medical degree from Southern Illinois University School of Medicine in Springfield and completed his Transitional residency and Radiology residency at Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, Ill. He completed a fellowship in Neuroradiology at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
Dr. Ripeckyj decided to go into radiology as a specialty because of the diversity of problems it can address. He said, “Radiology is often thought of as a behind-the-scenes specialty, but I enjoy the interaction with patients and colleagues.”
He is a member of the American Roentgen Ray Society, which is the first and oldest radiology society in the United States, the Radiological Society of North America and the Ukrainian Medical Association of North America.
