Franklin Community Health Network & Affiliate Boards

Tim Churchill032017It is my pleasure to honor the staff and all who volunteer and contribute to the good work of Franklin Community Health Network. The tradition of annual informational meetings is a reminder that Franklin Community Health Network and our affiliates remain community-owned and community-centered.

I express my gratitude to our assiduous, imaginative, creative, and supportive boards. I’m sure that you will recognize many of the names listed here and you should feel free to reach out to any board member if you have a question, suggestion, idea, or concern.

As always, I welcome inquiries from community members who are interested in serving on a committee or board of Franklin Community Health Network.

- Timothy Churchill, President


At their annual meeting on October 24, 2018, the Corporators of MaineHealth gave their approval to a plan to unify our Maine-based local health systems under a single Board of Trustees effective January 1, 2019. Unification puts the strength of the entire MaineHealth system behind our efforts in each and every community to ensure the delivery of integrated, high-quality, well-coordinated care.

A key tenet of the unification plan is maintaining Local Boards that will oversee the care delivered in our communities and provide local input into decision-making. Local Boards are organized as committees of the MaineHealth Board and have an important role in our community, participating in quality oversight, oversight of local medical staffs, planning, budgeting and the hiring of key executives, local fundraising initiatives, among other duties.
