About The Dempsey Center

Known originally as The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing, the Dempsey Center was founded in 2008, as an affiliate of Central Maine Medical Center and a result of the Dempsey family’s personal experience. The Dempsey Center now has a staff of 31 and annual revenue of approximately $3.5 million. Its signature fundraiser is the Dempsey Challenge, an annual 2-day run, walk, and cycle experience. In 2020, pivoting to all-virtual, the event attracted 2,800 registered participants from around the globe and raised more than $1.2 million.

The Opportunity

Upon the departure of a highly successful, long-time leader, the organization is seeking an Executive Director who is excited about building on the Dempsey Center’s incredible history and expanding its impact in the future. This is a unique and exciting opportunity to take the helm of a leading cancer support organization looking to expand its reach in Maine and also continuing to find ways to contribute nationally and internationally.
