Provider Bio down arrow

When Dr. Kathryn Schaus heard that Hayward needed a pediatrician, she jumped at the chance. 

“My husband Greg and I both love this area and being in the outdoors," she said. 

Dr. Schaus earned her medical degree at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine & Public Health in Madison. As a medical student, she did a rotation at Marshfield Clinic, which confirmed that it was a highly respected organization that had opportunities for physicians wanting to practice in smaller and more rural communities.

“It's comforting to know that, as a primary care provider, advanced specialty care is available when needed," she said.

She completed a residency in pediatrics at the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor and is board-certified.

Dr. Schaus also has three grown children of her own, who she credited with making her a better pediatrician. 

She was a pediatrician for 26 years in Chippewa Falls and later transferred to the Hayward Center. 

“I love children, of course. I've always felt comfortable with them," she said. “I also think I have a good rapport with parents." 

Dr. Schaus and her husband, Greg Pautsch, enjoy biking, skiing, running and using the famous nearby Birkie Trail year-round.​
