The halls of St. Joseph Hospital are filled with many amazing providers, each with unique specialties, impressive accolades, and a commitment to our patients. One of these providers is Dr. Mark Lena, board-certified gastroenterologist. Dr. Lena brings 33 years of experience to his patients.
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Mark Lena has been elected as American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) Governor for the State of Maine. As Governor, he will serve as a liaison between Society members of gastroenterologists and the college. This group is active in local and National legislation, generally acting once a year as lobbyist for ACG in Washington DC for various bills that benefit the patients in our state.
Impressively, Dr. Lena has been a fellow in the ACG since 2012 and Maine’s governor for ACG from 2012-2018. From April of 2016 to 2018, he served as president of the Maine GI Society and assumed presidency again in 2020.
We are proud of Dr. Lena’s accomplishments and thankful for his commitment to the gastroenterology profession.
