Maine Department of Corrections Health Services Coordinator Kim Robbins announces the arrival of Ms. Holly Howieson, R.N. at MDOC Central office.

Howieson is assisting Robbins with medical contract auditing and oversight. She started in her new position June 16.

Howieson holds a bachelor’s degree in nursing and comes to the department as a seasoned nurse with many years of correctional experience; including working at both the old Maine State Prison in Thomaston, and the new Maine State Prison in Warren.

Howieson’s clinical skills make her a valuable asset to the MDOC health services team, according to a news release. In coming weeks, she will accompany Robbins on visits to each correctional facility, and be introduced at each location to administrative staff.
