She has served as nursing vice president of Maine Medical Center since 2017, with leadership roles across multiple areas including emergency and inpatient units. Maine Medical Center is MaineHealth's flagship hospital, based in Portland.

“I am excited to join the team at Southern Maine Health Care," said Moody. "This nursing team is extremely talented and I am already impressed by the ongoing efforts of the teams to provide the best care for our patients. The nurses at SMHC are truly dedicated to caring for the people of York County and I am thrilled to be part of this team.”

Moody earned her bachelor's and master’s of science in nursing from the University of New Hampshire.

Southern Maine Health Care includes a full-service, acute care medical center in Biddeford, with York County’s only inpatient mental health unit. The company has medical centers in Biddeford and Sanford as well as primary care and multi-specialty physician services, diagnostic and therapy services, and walk-in care centers in York County communities, including Biddeford, Kennebunk, Saco, Sanford and Waterboro.

SMHC is No. 5 among the largest hospitals in the state, according to the 2023 Mainebiz Book of Lists. That ranking is based on the number of licensed acute care beds.
