Dr. Jeff Aalberg to Step Down as MaineHealth ACO Chief Medical Officer

July 13, 2018
Dr. Jeff Aalberg, the MaineHealth ACO chief medical officer since 2009, will be stepping down at the end of August to concentrate more fully on his clinical practice. Jeff has been a moving force both at the ACO and MaineHealth, leaving a legacy of innovation, collaboration and passion for building a health system founded on the principles of patient-centered and family-oriented care.

"Personally, I will greatly miss Jeff's steady partnership, vision for change, and ability to always say yes to any task, request, project or strategic challenge," says Dr. Betsy Johnson, the ACO's president and CEO. "Jeff has helped lead the ACO with great integrity and has been a trusted colleague and valued mentor to many of us here. I know he will continue these relationships using his gift as a healer, doctor and leader."

Jeff's history of leadership at MaineHealth reaches well beyond the ACO. From 2002 to 2008, he served as MaineHealth medical director for Supply Chain, Infectious Disease, Pharmacy and Therapeutics. He filled the role of senior medical director for PCMH, Chronic Disease, Prevention and Palliative Care from 2009 to 2017. In addition, Jeff has been a faculty member of the MaineHealth Physician Leadership Development Fellowship since 2009.

Jeff's energy, dedication and congenial presence will be missed here at the ACO and across the MaineHealth system.
