Seth Rabinowitz, surrounded by his fellow team members

BRIDGTON — Seth Rabinowitz, CRNA, a nurse anesthetist at Bridgton Hospital, is this year’s winner of the Winnie R. Moore Award.

The Winnie R. Moore Award was established to recognize clinical nursing excellence. Recipients exemplify qualities such as leadership, mentorship, and commitment to caring for the Lakes Region. It’s named after Winnie Moore, RN, who spent most of her career in Bridgton, working as a nurse at Northern Cumberland Memorial Hospital which later became Bridgton Hospital. She was the director of nursing at Bridgton Hospital for 29 years and also served on the hospital’s board of directors.

For years, Seth Rabinowitz has been delivering anesthesia care to Bridgton Hospital’s surgical patients. His expertise is widely acknowledged and sought out by providers there.

“Seth has been instrumental in advancing Bridgton Hospital’s surgical services,” said Bridgton Hospital President Stephany Jacques. “He collaborates closely with our nurses and provides a stabilizing presence for the entire team. He is well deserving of this award.

The award presentation took place during the annual Winnie Moore Breakfast at Bridgton Hospital which is part of Central Maine Healthcare’s Nurses Week celebrations. During the ceremony, past Winnie R. Moore Award winners pass a candle along until it reaches the current year’s recipient, representing the passing of the torch.
