Calais Community Hospital is pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Thomas Crosslin, MD, FACS, to the medical staff. Dr. Crosslin has been providing coverage for surgical services at CCH since most of last year and decided to join the CCH family as a permanent provider.
Dr. Crosslin is a board-certified surgeon and looks forward to continuing to provide quality services to the people of Downeast Maine. His surgical expertise includes, but is not limited to, endoscopy, colonoscopy, laparoscopic procedures, and surgery of the abdominal cavity.
Dr. Crosslin earned his undergraduate degree from Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN and his medical degree from The Ohio State University College of Medicine in Columbus, OH. His internship and residency were completed at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, MA.
Dr. Crosslin, along with his younger brother and sister, was raised in a small, rural Appalachian foothill town in Tennessee. His parents were both pharmacists and are currently retired in the area he grew up in. His family now also includes two daughters aged 14 and 9 ½, who enjoy spending time with dad baking cookies, talking chickens, doing puzzles, and taking part in sports or CrossFit activities. During his leisure time Dr. Crosslin enjoys getting out in nature, hiking, target shooting, CrossFit, and reading – books he can hold preferably.
After spending about 18 months on temp assignments, Dr. Crosslin was ready to settle back into a permanent practice again and chose Calais due to its proximity to his family and the people he had been caring for and working with. “The people here are very appreciative of the care team and the hospital,” Dr. Crosslin explained.
Dr. Crosslin sees patients at the Specialty Services offices located within the Calais Hospital. He is accepting new referrals. If the opportunity arises, please take the opportunity to welcome him to our community.
