Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center has expanded from a single-family home on the banks of the Penobscot River to a multi-building campus housing some of the most advanced healthcare services, not just in Maine, but in the entire country. In response to the needs of our community, we recently modernized our hospital campus with a focus on the healthcare demands of infants, new mothers, those who depend on expert surgical and cardiac care, and more.
The new building includes the latest technology and was designed with the needs of patients, nurses, and other staff in mind. Nursing staff are active with various teams to make sure the transition to the new space is safe and smooth. Our nurses have contributed many hours of time and attention to assist with the planning, design, and development of the project, including participating in a research study with the University of Rhode Island to simulate safety scenarios in preparation for a transition to a new space.
