St. Joseph Healthcare transferring two dozen Bangor jobs to Lewiston

About two dozen billing positions at St. Joseph Healthcare in Bangor will be moving to Lewiston next June.

The Bangor Daily News reported that Covenant Health — the Massachusetts-based company that owns St. Joseph's, St. Mary's Health System in Lewiston and St. Joseph Hospital in Nashua, N.H. — chose Lewiston due to its central geographic location in the system. The billing change is related to the system-wide implementation of a standardized electronic medical record system.

"In order for us to fully implement the system, we had to look at the way we did business at each facility," Covenant spokeswoman Karen Sullivan told the BDN. Sullivan said billing staff in Bangor may relocate to Lewiston without having to apply for those jobs, and those who want to stay in Bangor were encouraged to apply for other positions with St. Joseph Healthcare as they become available.
