RUMFORD — Central Maine Healthcare recently added two new providers to the River Valley region.

Jesse Leeds, MD, is joining the team at Swift River Family Medicine in Rumford.

Lauren Mason is a pediatric nurse practitioner who is joining the Elsemore Dixfield Family Medicine practice.

Originally from Long Island, New York, Leeds graduated medical school from SUNY Downstate and completed his residency at Maine-Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency.

“I am interested in treating the ‘whole person’ when I meet with patients,” he said. “I very much enjoy the interaction with them and trying to get to the root of whatever medical issues they may be experiencing.”

Mason was born at Rumford Hospital and started her career there as a certified nursing assistant.

She graduated from Maryville University and said she chose pediatrics for a simple reason: “I have always loved caring for children and teaching them how to be the healthiest people they can be. I have a background in labor and delivery, and have a national certification for breastfeeding support. I am here to build healthy lifestyles with the children of my beloved local community.”
