Circle of Care: Dr. Carl Flynn

"I’ve always referred patients to hospice, and been an advocate of the program. But it wasn’t until a family member spent their last days at the Aroostook House of Comfort, that I realized what a truly special place it is. The staff, the atmosphere, and the attention to detail was truly inspiring. It was at that point that I knew I wanted to join the team and do my part to help patients and families through these most special and trying times in their journey."


Dr. Carl Flynn was born in Saint John, New Brunswick, went to college at Saint Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia, pursued medical school in St. John’s, Newfoundland, and completed his family medicine residency at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario in 1995. Since then, he has been employed at Pines Health Service, mainly in Caribou. Holding board certification in both Canada and the US, he was honored as Citizen of the Year by the Caribou Chamber of Commerce in 2003. The Maine Academy of Family Physicians recognized him as the Family Physician of the Year in 2009, and in 2011, he was named the Maine Primary Care Association Physician of the Year. Presently serving as the Medical Director of Caribou Rehab and Nursing, as well as Presque Isle Rehab and Nursing, he also holds the position of Chief of Staff at Cary Medical Center. With 19 years under his belt, he continues to lead the Presque Isle High School Varsity Hockey team as the head coach. In his leisure time, he enjoys golfing and spending quality moments at his lake house on Long Lake with his wife Michelle.
