November 30, 2007
Leslie A. Hawkins, Administrator for Pine Tree Medical Associates, has become a Fellow in the American College of Medical Practice Executives (ACMPE). Fellowship in the ACMPE is the highest distinction in the medical practice management profession.

This includes financial management, human resources management, planning and marketing, information management, risk management, governance and organizational dynamics, business and clinical operations, and professional responsibility. In addition, Hawkins completed the presentation requirement and maintained continuing education credit hours to achieve CMPE status. Hawkins also submitted a professional paper, "Quality of Care Measures and Public Accountability in Medical Practices," documenting the objectives and results of an investigation into a health care management topic.
Leslie Hawkins has led Pine Tree Medical Associates, a Franklin Community Health Network affiliate consisting of six primary care physician practices, three surgical practices, and a seasonal clinic at Sugarloaf, since 1999.
Hawkins received her master's degree in Health Care Administration from George Washington University. She is a Fellow in the American College of Healthcare Executives, and is a former member of its nominating committee representing New England, New York, and eastern Canada. Hawkins is also a member of the Maine Physician Practice Management Forum.
