Whether you need the services of Northern Light Cardiology or the expertise of one of our surgeons from Northern Light Cardiothoracic Surgery, we believe your heart deserves the best care.

Not all medical institutions have highly-experienced cardiovascular physicians and the latest technologies to diagnose and treat heart disease. But we do. For more than 40 years, we have been dedicated to the heart health of the people of Maine. Our highly-experienced cardiovascular physicians and advanced technologies are here for one reason: your heart.

Northern Light Cardiology is home to physicians and surgeons who have trained at the leading cardiac centers in the world and provide the most up-to-date surgical techniques available anywhere. In fact, we perform more than 75,000 cardiac procedures and tests each year, and our many services include various in-house as well as outreach clinics across eastern, central, and northern Maine.

At Northern Light Cardiothoracic Surgery, our accomplished surgeons utilize the most advanced surgical techniques for diseases of the heart, lungs, esophagus, mediastinum, thoracic aorta, diaphragm, and chest wall. Committed to raising quality through innovation, we use minimally invasive approaches and procedures whenever possible, including our state-of-the-art DiVinci surgical robot. We are the only hospital in Maine to offer esophogectomies.

In short, our mission is to deliver the highest quality, expert care with compassion and consideration, and our goal is to give our best to every patient, every time, and make healthcare work for you.
