Congenital Heart has been the premier Congenital Cardiology Practice in the state of Maine for over 50 years. We are excited to announce that Congenital Heart has partnered with Maine Medical Partners and MaineHealth to continue providing state-of-the-art care for children and adults with congenital heart disease. This partnership will form the new Division of Pediatric Cardiology and Congenital Heart Care at Maine Medical Center. Commensurate with this partnership is the opportunity to formalize an Adult with Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) program to serve the burgeoning population of ACHD in Maine.
The candidate would be BE/BC in Pediatric Cardiology and BE/BC in ACHD with appropriate academic appointments. Responsibilities would include developing and directing an ACHD service that would provide both inpatient consultative services and outpatient care through multidisciplinary clinics with the expectation of having the program accredited. There would be close collaboration with the Adult Cardiology Service as well as with comprehensive subspecialty services both in Pediatrics and Adult Medicine at Maine Medical Center. This program has been deemed a priority by the institution with proforma data to support additional hires for the service as needed.
A research interest is encouraged with opportunities for collaboration with established research institutes like the Maine Medical Cardiovascular Research Institute (MMCRI). Call responsibilities would be 1:5 nights and include being a congenital consultant in the post-operative PICU, caring for service patients on the ward, and fielding calls from outpatients in our practice and from ER’s throughout the state.
The candidate will join 6 other Pediatric Cardiologists, who have established the only comprehensive Congenital Heart program in the state of Maine. The program has recently hired an experienced surgeon to serve as the Director of Congenital Cardiac Surgery. After providing comprehensive congenital surgical care in the state for the past 25 years, the new Director has ensured that the infrastructure is in place to continue providing excellent surgical care. Comprehensive interventional services have been provided for over 20 years with all FDA-approved devices and procedures, including transcatheter pulmonary valve insertion being performed. The program also performs state-of-the-art imaging including fetal, TTE, TEE, CMRI and CTA.
