Since 1991, George Hill has served as the President and CEO of Maine Family Planning, a private organization responsible for assuring that more than 23,000 Maine women and teens have access to affordable, high quality family planning services through a network of 47 clinic sites located in every county in the state. In 1994, he oversaw the development of the Parker Harris & Russell DeJong Center for Reproductive Health, which was created to provide abortion care and is the only training site in Northern New England for residents and physicians seeking to learn how to provide the procedure. As a result, close working relationships have been developed with family practice residencies throughout the state, including the Maine-Dartmouth Family Practice Program and with the University of New England Medical School. In 2015-16, he raised private funds for and oversaw the implementation of medication abortion via telemedicine in all 18 of Maine Family Planning’s health centers, making Maine just the third state in the nation to make such services available through telemedicine.
