Jonathan Wood, MD is specialist in Pediatric Critical Care and currently is the medical director of Eastern Maine Medical Center’s Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). Dr. Wood came to Bangor in 2002 from a faculty position at the University of Massachusetts Medical School where his clinical work was solely in the areas of Pediatric Intensive Care and Pediatric Emergency Medicine. Since arriving at EMMC, Dr. Wood has recruited two additional Pediatric Intensivists to help staff the PICU. He has also created a dedicated Pediatric Sedation Program at EMMC.
Dr. Wood was attracted to Bangor not only by EMMC's commitment to delivering quality pediatric intensive care, but also by a commitment to serving the general medical needs of children in the entire region. With this in mind, efforts are now being focused on outreach programs and other ways to provide additional support to practitioners in the many communities of central, eastern, and northern Maine.
