Extended hours create options for busy families

Jeanine Lepien with her children, Samantha and Benjamin.

Dental technician Jeanine Lepien is married with 2 kids and multiple demands on her time. That's why she values the extended hours offered at Aurora Wilkinson Medical Clinic. Patients have many options for appointments, including early mornings, evenings or Saturdays.

"I see Dr. (John) Schwab in Hartland and my children see their pediatrician, Dr. (Karen) Swanson, in Oconomowoc," Jeanine said. "I usually ask for an early morning or evening appointment, because I hate to miss work. It's definitely convenient to have more options to get everyone in. It was a great idea.

"As a working mom, I've always said it's hard enough to juggle the daily demands of a family. When there's a health care need, it would be great to have hours that are built around the needs of a family instead of the convenience of the doctor and clinic staff. That's exactly what Aurora has done."
