Dr. Benjamin Russell Surgical Services Technology Investment Fund

Named in honor of longtime Northern Light Mercy Hospital chief of general surgery, chief of the medical staff, and board member, the Dr. Benjamin Russell Surgical Services Technology Investment Fund supports Mercy’s existing high-quality, accessible, advanced surgical services to incorporate the latest technology in pre-operative, surgical, and postoperative care to meet the healthcare needs of our community. 

The fund recognizes Dr. Russell’s care of patients, mentorship to colleagues, and dedicated service to Mercy.  Dr. Russell spent the last decade of his career at Mercy and previously cared for patients at Maine Medical Center, Southern Maine Medical Center, and the former Brighton Medical Center. 

“I hope and pray that I have made a positive difference in the lives of those I have cared for, worked alongside, and mentored over the years,” Dr. Russell said.  He continued, “Reflecting on my career, Ambroise Pare sums it up best: ‘I dressed the wound, but God healed him.”

The Fund will provide strategic investments in surgical care with a mission to attain better health for all including the most vulnerable members of our community.
