RUMFORD — Jane Aube, who has been director of nursing at Rumford Hospital since 1987, retired at the end of January.
She oversaw all nursing functions at the hospital as well as case management and risk management. She was instrumental in organizing Rumford Hospital’s Specialty Clinics and the Swing Bed program.
“The entire organization is better for the commitment, dedication and professionalism Jane brought to Rumford Hospital,” R. David Frum, the hospital’s president, said. “She will leave a lasting legacy on all of us.”
Aube earned her nursing diploma at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital School of Nursing, her bachelor’s degree in psychology at Emmanuel College in Boston, her bachelor of science in nursing from Southeastern Massachusetts University and her master of science in nursing from the University of Southern Maine.
Recently, Aube led the Rumford Hospital nursing team to obtain the Pathway to Excellence nursing accreditation. The hospital has also been recognized with a top hospital Leapfrog award, due in large part to Aube’s work with staff.
Aube lives in Monmouth with her husband, Michael. The couple enjoys skiing and being out on the lake.
