MDI Hospital President/CEO Arthur J. Blank to Host Listening Session on Senior Health Care

Mount Desert Island Hospital President/ CEO Arthur J. Blank will meet with community members to discuss issues surrounding senior health care on Thursday, September 26 from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Jesup Memorial Library.

In this moderated session, attendees will have the opportunity to share their thoughts, questions and concerns around senior health care, retirement and rehabilitative care, aging in place, short-term and long-term care.

“With the continued growth of the retirement population in Maine and the recent closure of our local long-term care facility, we want to hear from our community about how we can best work together to address the needs of our aging population,” said Blank.

Since joining MDI Hospital in 1999, Blank has worked to strengthen the health of the community through the pursuit of innovative care and an integrated health system. Under his leadership, the organization has forged a groundbreaking teaching partnership with Penn Medicine, established a nonprofit retirement community, transitioned to a critical access hospital and incorporated eight community health centers, including the community’s first full-service behavioral health center and a nonprofit dental center.
Blank graduated with a B.S. Degree in Business Administration, magna cum laude, from Boston University in Boston, MA in 1975. He successfully completed a year of legal studies at Villanova University of Law in Villanova, PA., and is a licensed Certified Public Accountant.
