Lewiston Regional Technical Center nursing students discuss health care professions this month with Central Maine Healthcare team members at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston.

LEWISTON — Central Maine Healthcare teamed up with Lewiston Regional Technical Center earlier this month to host a health care job fair at Central Maine Medical Center.

For two days, Central Maine Healthcare experts staffed booths and spoke with more than 100 high school and adult education students. Team members shared their career experiences and educational backgrounds and offered important behind-the-scenes information about the benefits of working in healthcare at Central Maine Healthcare.

“Central Maine Healthcare has always been a very supportive community partner,” Technical Center Director Rob Callahan said. “I think the opportunities they offer to students are rich and provide a meaningful pathway that we’re excited to introduce them to.”

Students were among those who came to inquire about positions in nursing and other health care professions.

The job fair is among several initiatives Central Maine Healthcare has taken over the past year to address shortages in nursing and other health care fields. It also recently announced a tuition reimbursement program that pays 100% of education costs for eligible nursing and medical imaging students at the Maine College of Health Professions.
