As a former college wrestler, Tim Dentry exhorts people to “pin COVID-19 to the mat” and “avoid being pinned by the virus.” His folksiness, bred in northern Maryland’s horse country, comes in handy as president and CEO of Northern Light Health, a Brewer, Maine-based 10-hospital system serving the entire state. Even before the pandemic, however, Dentry’s vision was both local and global. Prior to joining Northern Light Health in 2016 as COO, he pursued international health-delivery improvement in places like Addis Ababa and Abu Dhabi with backing from Yale and Johns Hopkins. His focus was on raising the standards of healthcare for large communities. Dentry earned a Bachelor of Science and an MBA from Loyola University Maryland and served as a Fellow in International Health from Yale.
