Since January 2020, I have the new honor to serve this organization as President. I have learned that this organization’s employees, physicians, nurses, and community volunteers form an dedicated and enthusiastic team - committed to providing exceptional care for our patients. This is a respectful and caring group that welcomes transparency and open communication. Like many small, rural hospitals, we have our challenges, but the team here is outstanding and well-equipped to meet those challenges.
Being part of the MaineHealth family has provided our organization with advantages around the sharing of resources: personnel, clinical best-practices, strategic planning, purchasing, and human resources, among others. This support allows us to continue to provide the highest quality care to the 40,000 residents in our service area and to remain an important employer in our region.
In closing, I would also like to extend special recognition to the local board who has volunteered hundreds of hours and immeasurable expertise to assure the success of this organization.
