The Center for Women’s Health in Connecticut, with offices in Waterbury and Southbury, has welcomed two new young physicians, Elizabeth A. Kelly, M.D. and Molly M. Shipman, D.O. to their practice. Providing comprehensive gynecologic and obstetric care to women of all ages, The Center for Women’s Health, a member of Women’s Health Connecticut, has been serving women throughout the region for over 40 years. Dr. Kelly and Dr. Shipman join a team of eight other physicians who are all affiliated with both Waterbury and Saint Mary’s Hospitals in Waterbury. The eight additional physicians are Dr. Frederick Cohn; Dr. Jonathan Foster; Dr. John Lewis; Dr. Anne Schneider McNulty; Dr. Joseph Millerick; Dr. Marcia Tejeda; Dr. Clare Ventre and Dr. Mary Zozulin.

“We are all truly delighted,” stated Dr. Marcia Tejeda of The Center for Women’s Health, “to welcome these two highly-educated, enthusiastic young women into our practice. They are both accomplished and insightful women. Dr. Kelly has expressed a sincere and compassionate commitment to caring for her patients through every phase of their lives, and she has a strong interest in the miracle of pregnancy and birth. She also loves performing laparoscopic surgery. Dr. Shipman has demonstrated her holistic approach of integrating body, mind and spirit into her ob/gyn practice, and treasures the relationships she has fostered with her obstetrics patients. She has extensive training in both laparoscopic and robotic surgery and possesses a heightened interest in the latest and most advanced techniques.”

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Dr. Elizabeth A. Kelly attended Princeton University where she earned her B.A. in Psychology, and was a two-time All American Squash player. In 2007, Dr. Kelly received her Doctor of Medicine from The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences.
