C.A. Dean Memorial Hospital seeks a BC/BE physician to join their Emergency Department/Hospitalist team.  Current members of the team are Board Certified in Family Medicine and/or Emergency Medicine, but any combination of relevant training and experience will be considered.  Physicians have a unique, highly flexible full time flexible schedule working 24-hour shifts that allows for extended time off.  The compensation and fringe benefits package is highly competitive. 

CA Dean Memorial Hospital is a Critical Access Hospital on the shore of Moosehead Lake in the heart of Maine’s Lakes and Mountains region.  Physicians enjoy the quality of life afforded by a low-volume, Community-centered rural hospital in an idyllic setting.  Suitable candidates are comfortable working independently to manage the breadth of problems presenting to a “front line” hospital.

CA Dean is a member of the Eastern Maine Healthcare System, which provides access to an integrated EMR, access to tertiary specialty services through a “one call” transfer system, and selected telemedicine services.  CA Dean is also served by a Regional Trauma Service, Lifeflight of Maine, utilizing helicopter and fixed-wing resources.
