BELGRADE– This August, staff at Belgrade Regional Health Center are pleased to welcome Abigail Dalzell, Family Nurse Practitioner. Abigail has more than four years of medical experience in hospital and rural settings.

Abigail earned her Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Southern Maine in Portland. She previously obtained her Bachelors of Arts in Chemistry from Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts. Abigail’s interests range from expanding Medication Assistance Treatment (MAT) services, to introducing trauma-informed practices, to providing excellent geriatric care. Abigail completed some of her clinical rotations at our Lovejoy (Albion), Mt. Abram (Kingfield), and Western Maine (Livermore Falls) health centers. We are pleased to welcome her back to the HealthReach team, knowing she will be a wonderful addition to the Belgrade community!

Abigail joins a great team at Belgrade, including physician Amy Madden, nurse practitioners Katie Gillihan and Andrew Twaite, psychiatric nurse practitioner Theresa Rush, and licensed clinical social worker Rita Alfonso LaBarbera. Our clinicians offer medical and behavioral health services to patients of all ages. Our Belgrade practice has proudly served area residents and visitors from Augusta, Waterville, Rome, Oakland, Sidney, Vassalboro, Readfield, Manchester, Mount Vernon – and other nearby towns – since its founding in 1977.
