At Androscoggin Home Healthcare + Hospice we are united in a dedication to make each of our patient’s here and now the best it can possibly be.
A Maine native, Ken’s background is rich in medical experience, including 17 years of clinical practice in emergency and intensive care settings. He served as Director of Emergency Services at Central Maine Medical Center (CMMC), as the Administrator of the Occupational Health Center affiliated with CMMC, and as the Lewiston Site Manager for LifeFlight of Maine.
For five years, he traveled across the United States providing critical care nursing in metropolitan, rural and tribal communities. He also taught Legal Issues in Health Care Administration as an adjunct faculty member at New England College.
Ken is a graduate of the CMMC School of Nursing and earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Southern Maine, Magna Cum Laude, and a degree of Juris Doctor from the University of Maine School of Law with honors in health law.
“The mission at Androscoggin focuses on improving the quality of life for members of the Maine community by providing innovative and compassionate health care. This aligns beautifully with my professional objectives, and I get to work with a team that is incredibly competent, talented and dedicated to our mission.”
Leann brought more than three decades of healthcare experience to Androscoggin when she joined us in 2018. She attended St. Joseph’s School of Nursing and Millersville University (Pennsylvania) and holds degrees in nursing and science.
After graduation, Leann worked in a variety of settings, including trauma, pediatrics, emergency care, and leading mobile advanced life support at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Lancaster, PA. She later served as a Medical Flight Nurse at Brandywine Hospital and Trauma Center in Caln Township, PA., and was the Trauma Clinical Coordinator for the Level 1 Regional Resource Trauma Center at Temple University Hospital.
In 1996, Leann began to focus on home care and hospice in the Maine health system. She joined their team as RN Case Manager, Pediatric Specialist and Director of Nursing from 2006 to 2014. Prior to joining Androscoggin, she served as the Clinical Director of Maine Health Care at Home’s Coastal Division.
A published author, Leann is a member of the Organization of Maine Nurse Executives; the American Organization of Nurse Executives; the National Association for Home Care and Hospice; the Society of Pediatric Nurses and the American Holistic Nurses Association.
“Home health is one of the answers to our national healthcare dilemma. Being in the comfort of home with family, friends and the help of quality home care aids leads to speedier recoveries and a return of independence. For hospice patients and their loved ones, being at home during end-of-life care can be comforting, and we make a difference by managing symptoms and helping with the grief of loss.”
For nearly two decades, Kathy has been proactive in successfully preparing Androscoggin Home Healthcare and Hospice for all financial changes affecting health care and has provided oversight and expertise in all financial matters. She joined Androscoggin in 2000 as the Accounts Receivable Manager and was promoted to CFO in 2004.
Her experience in home care extends nearly 40 years. It includes a 19-year stint as the Chief Financial Officer for the Visiting Nurse Service in Saco and as Senior Financial Analyst for a physician’s network in Indiana.
Kathy earned a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Southern Maine and an undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan. She’s been active in community service clubs and is the former treasurer for Home Care Alliance of Maine. Kathy was recognized as a Presidents’ Award winner in 2017 for her skills, as well as dedication and commitment to our organization.
“It’s important that the services we provide are available to future generations and that health care continues to be provided for the patient where they live, at home or in the community. I want to do all that I can to make sure Androscoggin is well-poised for the future and thrives.”
Ann started with Androscoggin in 1988 as Vice President of Human Resources. She was appointed Chief Administrative Officer in 2016, a title more reflective of her longtime oversight of Human Resources, Administrative Resources and facilities.
She received the Presidents’ Award in 2017, recognized for her deep commitment to our organization’s mission and staff, and under Ann’s leadership, Androscoggin was chosen as one of “Maine’s Best Places to Work” each time it competed for the distinction.
Ann graduated from Wheaton College and went on to earn a Master’s Degree in Counseling and Education at George Washington University. Prior to joining Androscoggin, she was the Director of Human Resources at St. Mary’s Hospital in Russellville, AR. She also developed and directed a new educational degree program at George Washington University and directed a community counseling center in Maryland.
“Androscoggin is unlike any other healthcare environment where I’d worked previously. I came to realize the stellar reputation the organization had in the community and felt a great deal of pride to be affiliated with it. That reputation and the pride that comes with it exists to this day.”
