Central Maine Healthcare has announced that Steve Littleson, DBA, FACHE, president and CEO, Central Maine Healthcare, has assumed the role of president of Bridgton Hospital.
This development follows the resignation of Peter Wright, FACHE, who served as president of the rural hospital for four years. “I would like to thank Peter for his leadership and many contributions to our critical access hospital.
“The board of directors of Central Maine Healthcare and I are committed to the continued success of Bridgton Hospital which plays a vital role in serving the community. To that end, I am honored to spend my time in Bridgton working alongside the team members, doctors and nurses who deliver compassionate, expert care each day,” Littleson said.
“Steve is incredibly excited to engage with our community and will provide the same excellent, strong leadership that he has become known for throughout the Central Maine system,” said Marney Chalmers who serves on the Central Maine Healthcare Board of Directors. “With change comes great opportunity and I’m optimistic about the future of local healthcare here in Bridgton.”
Bridgton Hospital has been recognized repeatedly by the LeapFrog Group, a hospital industry watchdog organization, as among the best rural hospitals in the nation.
