The City of Portland is pleased to announce that it has hired Rebecca Gagnon as the new Administrator of the Barron Center, the City’s skilled rehabilitation/nursing and long-term care facility. The Barron Center has provided skilled nursing and rehabilitation services to individuals in need for more than 200 years in our community. 

“As a Multi-Level licensed Administrator in the State of Maine for more than 8 years now, Rebecca has a proven track record of high level leadership and growth within each of the facilities she has led,” said Kristen Dow, Director of Health & Human Services. “I’m confident she will continue the Barron Center tradition of quality and excellence in care and will help move forward many new initiatives we are currently working on.” 

The Administrator is responsible for the day-to-day operation and oversight of the facility and reports to the City’s Director of Health & Human Services. Most recently, Gagnon served as the Executive Director of Springbrook Center, which includes 123 licensed beds, 22 of which are a part of the state's first only post-acute Ventilator Care program. Prior to that, she worked for the last ten plus years at several Genesis HealthCare facilities across central and southern Maine. 

Gagnon holds a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences from the University of New England; is a Licensed Social Worker in the State of Maine; completed the State of Maine Nursing Home Administrators Licensing Board’s Administrator-In-Training Program and is certified as a Multi-Level Long Term Care Administrator with the State of Maine.
