“MaineHealth’s care team has an incredible reputation for providing patient-centered care, educating caregivers and researching better ways to provide care,” said Crewse. "It’s that mission, the dedicated professionals behind it and the positive impact they have together on the communities they serve that drew me to Maine Medical Center and Southern Maine Health Care.”
