Maine is the newest state to embrace CALS as a program for improving rural health outcomes and quality. Guy Nuki, MD of Bluewater Emergency Partners, approached CALS in 2017 about conducting a course for the critical access hospitals in Maine. It is the first formal CALS program on the East Coast. The first class was held in May in the Portland, ME area, and the feedback from hospital clinical leaders who attended the course was that CALS would be an excellent course for all the rural and community hospitals. As of November 2022, 3 Trauma Module courses and 9 CALS 2-day Provider Courses have been held in several New England States (Maine, Massachusetts and Vermont).
