Andrew T. Mueller, MD, currently president and chief executive officer of CentraHealth of Lynchburg, Virginia, has been selected to replace Bill Caron, who announced his intention to retire last year, as executive director of MaineHealth. Dr. Mueller will assume this post in late spring according to a press release issued by MaineHealth today.
After receiving his medical degree from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine in 1996, Dr. Mueller joined the Air Force and completed his residence in Maryland, where he was later chief resident in family medicine. He left the Air Force in 2003.
Dr. Mueller began his career as a physician-executive with NovantHealth. In May of 2019, he became president and chief executive of CentraHealth.
Originally Bill Caron had intended to retire at the end of the 2020 calendar year, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic, those retirement plans were delayed.
“Bill has been our leader at MaineHealth since its earliest days and his vision built a health care system that delivers excellent care, every day and maintains local health care that meets the needs of their communities,” said Dufour. “The Board of Trustees believes Dr. Mueller will continue that track record of success.”
