2018 marked a year of big changes for Northern Light Health. Part of that change was physical as we rebranded our signs, logos, and image into Northern Light Health. The other part of that change was operational as our nine hospitals began switching over to one unified electronic health record system, allowing for seamless patient care. The final part of the change was to redefine our mission, vision, and values.

This transformation to Northern Light Health means that patients will receive the same level of care, whether they walk into Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, Northern Light CA Dean Hospital in Greenville, Northern Light Mercy Hospital in Portland, Northern Light AR Gould Hospital in Presque Isle, or any point in between.

In the pages of this year’s annual report, you will see examples of how we are rolling up our sleeves and working to raise quality through innovation, teamwork, and efficiency. We have fostered new clinical relationships with Massachusetts General Hospital, a world-class medical research hospital. We are using population health data in new ways to be smarter about how we deliver care to people close to home, and we are increasing our use of telemedicine to expand the reach of our talented medical staff to serve people across the state. You will learn more about these efforts through the stories of the patients we are helping. It’s a New Day in Maine.
