MaineHealth Corporate offices at Free Street in Portland

MaineHealth Corporate offices at Free Street in Portland.

MaineHealth saw the retirement of a few dedicated longtime leaders in 2021 and in 2022 welcomed several new ones fiercely committed to our vision of working together so our communities are the healthiest in America.  Each one brings years of experience together with energy and enthusiasm to advance our strategic priorities around workforce development, innovation, exceptional patient care, and affordable and sustainable care delivery in our communities.

We asked these leaders what drew them to MaineHealth and, from their distinctive vantage points, how they believe MaineHealth is uniquely positioned to meet the opportunities and challenges ahead in health care. Here are their responses.
