MMA Salutes Physicians of Washington County at May 22 Listening Session

MMA President Charles Pattavina welcomed attendees and moderated a discussion on current healthcare issues.

 

Because of group memberships with both hospitals and four federally qualified health centers in Washington County, virtually all the physicians in the county are MMA members. This fact was acknowledged at the event. Discussion topics and questions included the opioid crisis in the state and across the nation, the negative impact of the AHCA on rural Maine and the workforce shortages in the county, particularly in primary care. Burnout and the stress of practicing in the uncertainties of today's healthcare environment were also emphasized.
