Meet Our Neonatologists



Edward C. Denny, MD

Dr. Denny is a graduate of Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia and completed both his Pediatric Residency and Neonatal-Perinatal Fellowship at the Children’s Hospital National Medical Center in Washington, DC. Prior to moving to Wisconsin, he practiced medicine in Allentown, Pennsylvania where he was director of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. In 1992, he and his family moved to Marshfield where he initially practiced both General Pediatrics and Neonatology. He currently works part-time and restricts his practice solely to the babies in the NICU and the newborn nursery. He lives in Marshfield with his wife and, when time allows, enjoys bicycling and playing the piano.



Jody R. Gross, MD, FAAP

Dr. Gross is a graduate of University of California at Irvine medical school. She did her residency and fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. She moved to Marshfield in 1984 to be the second neonatologist here, and has seen the unit and the practice expand nicely in the intervening years. She and her husband have 3 boys, who are now grown. She enjoys beading jewelry, and her Australian Shepherd dogs. Particular interests within neonatology include pulmonary hypertension and cytomegalovirus infections. Dr. Gross is the Director of the Neonatal Transport Service and is the current Director of the NICU.



George J. Hoehn, MD

Dr. Hoehn completed his medical school training at Indiana University in 1980. After his Pediatric Residency at the University of Missouri, he moved on to the University of Connecticut for his Neonatology Fellowship, which was completed in 1985. He has been a full-time staff neonatologist in Marshfield since that time.



Babatunde T. Sobowale, MD

Dr. Babatunde "Baba" Sobowale earned his medical degree from the University of Ibadan College of Medicine, Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria. He completed his residency in pediatrics at New York Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn, New York and his fellowship in neonatology at Michigan State University-Sparrow Hospital, Lansing, Michigan.

Dr. Sobowale has a special interest in neonatal nutrition and is board certified in pediatrics. We welcomed him to our team of on-staff Marshfield Clinic neonatologists in July 2011.



Audra A. Winder, MD

Dr. Audra A. Winder is a native of Sheridan, Wyoming; Winder earned her undergraduate degree at the University of Wyoming in Laramie. She earned her medical degree at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. She completed an internship and residency in pediatrics, and a fellowship in neonatology, all at the University of Iowa Hospitals, Iowa City, Iowa. She practiced pediatrics for three years at Peoples Community Health Clinic, Waterloo, Iowa.

“Neonatology was always something I enjoyed,” Winder said. “I also enjoyed my pediatrics residency a lot, and my hospital practice, which included working with a nursery. We can help babies who are born as early as 24 weeks, and their families. Some of them are here with us for a month or more, depending on how their lungs are doing.”

Dr. Winder is a full-time staff neonatologist in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
