BLUE HILL, Maine — Blue Hill Memorial Hospital  is pleased to welcome Fred Watters, FNP, to the organization. Fred will be seeing patients in Stonington at Island Family Medicine, and will join Dr. Dennis DeSilvey at Blue Hill Cardiovascular Medicine.

Looking forward to working with the strong community on Deer Isle and Stonington, Fred explained in a statement, “I am proud to be a part of an organization that ‘answers’ directly to the community, due to the unique history of the clinic. The integrated community health model is directly reflected in not only the diverse and experienced staff, but in the building design as well. Stonington has a unique history and I’m eager to get to know the community and assist them in navigating the tremendous changes coming to healthcare throughout the country.”

The staff at IFM is looking forward to introducing Fred to the community and believes he will complement the well-established team currently in place.

Fred also brings more than a decade of experience caring for cardiac patients, including work at EMMC’s Heart Center of Eastern Maine and EMMC’s Emergency Department. His knowledge of the various aspects of inpatient and outpatient cardiology will make him a strong advocate for his patients.  Fred is excited to join Dr. DeSilvey and “help our patients get great cardiac care close to home.”

Fred received his training at the University of Maine School of Nursing, the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, and the University of Colorado.  “We are so very fortunate to have recruited Fred, a healthcare professional with excellent training, vast experience, and a true passion for caring for patients,” states vice-president of provider practices Elizabeth Schidzick-Brunelle.  “Fred will certainly be a valuable asset to Blue Hill Memorial Hospital and the communities it serves.”
