MACHIAS — Former Maine Coast Memorial Hospital Chief Executive Officer Doug Jones has been named permanent CEO of Down East Community Hospital (DECH) after serving on an interim basis at the Machias hospital for over a year.
“This is such a rewarding position. I am honored to serve Down East Community Hospital and the Machias community,” Jones said.
The DECH Board of Trustees voted at its Dec. 1 board meeting to have Jones remain on as CEO of DECH after a receivership with Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems comes to an end.
When the state of Maine moved the hospital into receivership in July 2009 appointing Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems as the receiver, EMHS President and CEO Michelle Hood asked Jones to serve as interim CEO.
Jones, who had been CEO of Maine Coast Memorial Hospital for 10 years, took on the challenge.
DECH Board member and University of Maine-Machias President Cynthia Huggins said, “Doug Jones brings with him a wealth of experience from being CEO at Maine Coast Memorial Hospital. During the past year, I have seen many improvements in our hospital.
“Jones has appointed an interim board whose members have no financial ties to the hospital. These members come from all corners of Washington County and each has a background that will add value and expertise to board meetings.
“He is in the process of instituting community advisory councils to provide input to the board on those issues which the community feels are important and to improve the transparency of some board issues including communicating the plans and performance of DECH to the community,” Huggins said.
