LEWISTON – Kathleen C. Bourgault, regional director of Patient Financial Services at Central Maine Healthcare, has been elected president of the Maine Chapter of the American Association of Healthcare Administrative Management.

The AAHAM was founded in 1968 as the American Guild of Patient Account Management. Initially formed to serve the interests of hospital patient account managers, AAHAM has evolved into a national membership association that represents a broad-based constituency of health-care professionals.

She was elected to the leadership of the Maine organization at the Maine Chapter of AAHAM’s Annual Institute held in the fall. As a state president, she will serve on the national AAHAM Board of Directors.

A Central Maine Healthcare employee since 1990, her role at the organization has grown to include responsibility for patient access and accounts receivable for a regional health-care system comprised of three hospitals and multi-specialty physician practices. She holds an associate degree in management and a bachelor’s degree in business administration from St. Joseph’s College in Standish.

She lives in Minot with her husband, Keith. They have two grown daughters, Katie and Kellie.
