Frum joins Rumford Hospital as president
RUMFORD -- R. David Frum joined Central Maine Healthcare (CMH) in August of 2010 as president of Bridgton Hospital.
When John Welsh retired in July, Frum added the presidency of Rumford Hospital to his job description.
In welcoming Frum to CMH last year, CEO Peter Chalke said, “David will be a great resource for the entire Central Maine Medical Family.”
Indeed, by accepting responsibility for Rumford Hospital as well as Bridgton, he plans to link the two critical access sister hospitals of CMH very closely together. Several departments and services of the two hospitals had been sharing their expertise and training over the years, but under Frum’s leadership the two will move even closer, improving services at both hospitals.
Frum was previously president and CEO of Saint Catherine Regional Hospital, Charlestown, IN, a 96-bed facility located in a rural area north of Louisville, Kentucky. His background also includes a vice presidency with the Baptist Healthcare System in Louisville and a regional vice presidency with the Christus Spohn Health System of Corpus Christi, TX. He has experience in a wide range of hospital management.
After graduating from Louisiana State University with a BA, he went on to earn a master’s degree in public administration from the same school and a master’s in health services administration from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
Frum and his wife, Julie, reside in Sweden with their daughters, Jessica, 10, and Rachel, seven.
