David Frum is the CEO and president of both Bridgton and Rumford Hospitals, two critical access hospitals in Maine. Both hospitals earned the recognition of being among the top 20 critical access hospitals in 2016 by the National Rural Health Association (NRHA).
Additionally, Bridgton Hospital was named a top hospital in the small and rural category at the end of 2016 by The Leapfrog Group, an honor given to only 21 hospitals across the country. Bridgton was also the only hospital in the state of Maine to achieve top quartile performance in all four quadrants of their balanced scorecard. David emphasizes cross training and using employee’s complete skillsets to achieve organizational greatness.
"I really think, if there's a core to the secret sauce, a key ingredient, that's probably it - just thinking about who you have at the table, who's working for you and what are the skills that they might bring to the table that are over and above the department they currently sit in."
Prior to his current role, David has held multiple leadership positions. David was president and CEO of St. Catherine Regional Hospital in Charlestown, Indiana, a 96-bed facility just north of Louisville, Kentucky. David was also the Vice President of the Baptist Healthcare System in Louisville, Kentucky and Regional Vice President at CHRISTUS Spohn Health System in Corpus Christi, Texas. David has experience in hospital management, medical staff relations, business development and strategic planning. He holds a Masters in Hospital Administration from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and a Masters in Public Administration with a focus on health policy from Louisiana State University.
