Body of former MaineHealth executive found in pond

The body of John Heye, former executive at Portland-based MaineHealth, was found July 3 by anglers in Barker Pond in southern Oxford County, Maine, according to a Sun Journal report. 

Mr. Heye, 67, of Freeport, Maine, was the CFO of Maine Medical Center in Portland for nearly two decades before moving to the chief investment officer post in June 2014 at MaineHealth, MMC's parent company.

According to the report, the Maine Warden Service is waiting to hear back from the medical examiner's office on Mr. Heye's cause of death. 

In a written statement sent to the Sun Journal, MMC President and CEO Richard Peterson called Heye "the hardest-working retiree I've ever met."

Mr. Peterson also told the Sun Journal, "[Mr. Heye's] knowledge and stewardship of Maine Medical Center were instrumental to the growth and tremendous accomplishments of our organization over the past 20 years. I am certain that our continued success is a reflection of John's legacy."

Growth during Mr. Heye's tenure at MMC included the construction of the MMC's East Tower and the Spring Harbor Hospital in Westbrook, Maine, the expansion of MMC's presence and campus in Scarborough, Maine, and the growth and development of Maine Medical Partners, according to the report.
