Our team is completely committed to not only maximizing the success of our client hospitals, but also the clinicians who build their careers with us.

After an exhilarating week working with my esteemed NES colleagues, I get outside with my family and friends. An avid outdoor enthusiast, I enjoy any sport that doesn’t involve a motor: kayaking, paddle boarding, golfing, cycling, swimming, running, mountain biking, hiking, skiing, snow shoeing…. you name it! And I’m always eager to learn something new. I recently took up piano which I find much more challenging than a marathon or a century ride. I grew up in Boston, married a U.S. Marine and spent 20 years touring the United States moving from base to base and raising three amazing children before relocating to Boise, Idaho.
I also love talking and meeting new people so never hesitate to call me with a good story, a question or just to say hello.
Christopher Pepin, RN, MBA
Chief Operations Officer
Chris brings over 15 years of healthcare practice to NES Health—including working in EDs from Maine to Hawaii that ranged in size from small rural, 4-bed departments to 60-bed tertiary trauma centers. He has worked in ICU settings and was a flight nurse in Alaska for nearly five years. His leadership roles have included Director of Emergency Department and EMS programs, while also undertaking a multi-facility Quality and Service Excellence position.
Outside of NES Healthcare, my world is focused around my family. Born and raised in Maine, and you bet, I am a fan of wild blueberries and Maine Lobstah’! My free time is typically spent chasing my kids around and running them to sports events, usually with a coffee in hand. At our local Starbucks, they know me by name. Shhhhh don’t tell Dunkin Donuts (In New England, the thing here is to love Dunkin Iced Coffee).
If we have a chance to jump on a call, or meet in person, I won’t have a thick Maine accent you’ll probably expect — but if you ask what one sounds like, I can make a good attempt, knowing the only result will be laughter. But I’m okay with that. They do say, LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE

He previously worked as the Assistant Director and Quality Director for the Waterbury Hospital Emergency Department in Waterbury, Connecticut.
My life is surrounded by women. I have 3 girls Mikayla age 19, Samara age 15, and Talia age 12. My wife and I went to junior and senior high school proms together! My children have allowed me to get back to many things that I love like coaching their hockey teams, skiing and sailing. Lately, I have been spending more time on my road bike doing some long charity rides and dabbling in the occasional triathlon. I love doing mission work and for the past 5 years I have been going to Haiti on medical missions. Mikayla has gone with me twice and this year I am taking Samara.
Little known fact: I used to coach college women’s ice hockey.
Future plans: To have more time to get back into competitive sailboat racing.
