Blue Hill Memorial Hospital Welcomes New Physician Assistant to Blue Hill Orthopedics

Release Date: 09/23/2013

Blue Hill Memorial Hospital (BHMH) is pleased to welcome Barrett Grimnes, PA-C to Blue Hill Orthopedics.

Dr. James White is eager to expand the practice with the addition of Grimnes.  “We identified a significant need for additional support in our orthopedics practice,” explains vice president of physician services Elizabeth Schidzick-Brunelle.  “Barrett will truly enhance the capabilities of Blue Hill Orthopedics.  We are thrilled to have recruited a PA to the practice.  Barrett brings with her an excellent reputation and a nice complement of experience; she will be a fantastic addition to the team of BHMH providers caring for our community.”  

Most recently, Grimnes practiced at Parkview Adventist Medical Center in Brunswick, Maine.  She graduated with a Master’s of Science from The University of New England’s Physician Assistant Program.  Grimnes spent almost eight years in primary care where she saw and treated many nonsurgical orthopedic problems.  “I am very excited to participate in this next step of musculoskeletal care with Dr. White.  In addition to assisting with total joint replacements in the operating room, I am really looking forward to focusing on one area of medicine,” explains Grimnes.  “I love seeing patients of all ages and enjoy continuity of care - when I am able to see and help patients over many years.  I look forward to working with the small and close community of Blue Hill.”

Blue Hill Orthopedics offers a comprehensive program for orthopedic specialty and surgical care. The practice draws patients from well beyond the traditional Blue Hill service area, thanks to minimally invasive surgical techniques, a highly personalized approach, and outstanding reputation.  As a department of BHMH, state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging and laboratory services as well as physical and occupational therapy are on campus as well.
