NORWAY — Jeff Noblin, an experienced health care leader with more than 20 years in hospital and ambulatory leadership positions, has been selected as president of Western Maine Health/Stephens Memorial Hospital.

Jeff Noblin has been named president of Western Maine Health/Stephens Memorial Hospital.

Noblin, who most recently served as the chief executive officer of Pleasant Valley Hospital in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, replaces Andrea Patstone, who was promoted to the role of Coastal Region president within MaineHealth.

Prior to that, Noblin held executive positions at hospitals and health care systems throughout the country, including the states of Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and Tennessee.

Noblin holds a master’s degree in health care administration from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, South Carolina, and a bachelor’s degree in business and communications from Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina.

Noblin began in his new role in Norway on April 10 and says he is excited about leading Western Maine Health and contributing to the leadership team of the Mountain Region within MaineHealth.

He said the combination of working in a community as livable and dynamic as Norway and Greater Oxford County, as well as joining the region’s leading integrated health care system in MaineHealth, made for a very attractive opportunity.
