Mt. Abram Health Center welcomes new provider
KINGFIELD – Christie King, FNP will begin providing medical care at Mt. Abram Regional Health Center at the end of August. King recently completed the Family Nurse Practitioner Program at Southern Illinois University. She brings more than 10 years of nursing experience in hospital settings in various states. She also completed two year-long voluntary deployments in support of the War on Terror in Kuwait and Germany as an active duty US Navy Reserve Officer.
King’s areas of expertise include medical-surgical, emergency, maternal-child, orthopedic, traumatic burns and amputation. “I was pleased to find a position in an outlying clinic close to my home. My goal is to work at a family practice providing child, adult and geriatric care,” she shares. “I am committed to humanitarian and military missions.”
King will be joining family nurse practitioner Shannon Doughty, who provides care to more than 1,500 residents from Carrabassett Valley, Coplin and Dallas Plantations, Eustis, Kingfield, New Portland, and Stratton, as well as other locations in and outside of Maine.
