Dr. Michael J. O’Connell’s Support of Frisbie Memorial Hospital’s Capital Campaign…

Frisbie Memorial Hospital

Once again, in his most unpretentious manner, Dr. Michael J. O’Connell, participated in Frisbie Memorial Hospital’s Capital Campaign with a five-year pledge of $10,000 that was completed and acknowledged by the fund development’s Executive Director with much gratitude in April of 2013.

The Campaign’s funds were designated for major expansion of the hospital with new spacious cathedral lobby and additional patient rooms for the increasing demand in healthcare services and the continued addition of state-of-the-art technology.  Dr. O’Connell acknowledged that Frisbie’s beautiful new construction enhances their ability to continue providing quality, patient-centered care to the community.

It has been Dr. O’Connell’s tradition throughout his very successful career to continually give back to the surrounding communities where he grew up and works.  Dr. Michael O’Connell has lent his support to innumerable causes over the years to individuals and organizations with a few recent ones being St. Charles Home for Children, a scholarship for a local high school student with an interest in pursuing a medical career to attend the National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine in Boston,  a silver sponsor of Cornerstone Christian Academy’s Annual Benefit Auction, and the matching donations’ program to Cocheco Valley Humane Society that he has sponsored for eight years.  Dr. O’Connell remains a selfless, giving and caring professional.

About Dr. Michael J. O'Connell, New Hampshire
Dr. Michael J. O'Connell of Barrington, New Hampshire, has forged a distinguished career spanning over three decades, as entrepreneur, physician, businessman, philanthropist and healthcare consultant. As former owner, administrator and CEO of a 225+ employee multi-specialty medical practice, Dr. O'Connell has dedicated his entire professional life to helping patients with family medicine and especially those experiencing chronic pain and all aspects of addiction. Since selling his family of healthcare businesses, he has never once contemplated retirement despite his rich and fulfilling journey, but instead has turned his focus to consulting in an industry starved for courage and creativity. Having weathered many political, technological and legal challenges, there is hardly a storm he has not confronted, a tempest he has not quelled, an urgent need he has not met. While the talking heads and self-proclaimed experts in the field have assumed the conventions and standards of the times, Dr. O'Connell does not believe in merely reflecting the herd mentality, but rather in leading the charge. Eschewing political correctness, Dr. O'Connell says and does what needs saying and doing, and not what the mindless masses expect. In addition to the continual education afforded by his variegated life experiences, Dr O'Connell earned his BS in Biochemistry at the University of NH in 1975, his Medical Degree from Dartmouth College in 1981, interned at Walter Reed Medical Center in 1982, Residency/Fellowship at UCSF in1986, and finished his Masters in Healthcare Administration at UNH in 1995. Dr. O’Connell enjoys many outdoor activities, including rock climbing, snowboarding, hiking, and golf. Through the decades Dr. O'Connell has supported many non-profit charities to include the St. Charles Home in Rochester NH, the Tri City VNA and Hospice, Hyder House, and Cocheco Valley Humane Society. To the latter organization alone Dr. O'Connell has donated over $180,000 and pledged another $250,000 in the “Bring-Us-Home” campaign for a new building. His “Matching Donations Christmas drive” has generated over $175,000 in charitable giving from the community. In addition Dr. O'Connell has participated in many dozens of other volunteer and donation efforts locally as well as in Africa and the Dominican Republic.
