About Us

Northern Light Acadia Hospital is more than a hospital; we are a hub for behavioral and mental health services and expertise throughout Maine. 

  • Our Mission: To empower people to improve their lives.
  • Our Vision: To be the psychiatric provider of choice.
  • Our Values: Compassion, Accountability, Integrity, Respect
  • Our Promise: We make healthcare work for you.

We are committed to:
  • Raising quality through innovation, teamwork, and efficiency.
  • Making health and care accessible and straightforward.
  • Guiding families and individuals through the care experience.
  • Delivering care focused on the diverse needs of each person.

The care we provide to our patients is rooted in compassion and respect. A 100-bed, acute care, short-stay psychiatric hospital, we provide a full continuum of mental and behavioral health services for children, teens, and adults. Our interdisciplinary care teams work closely together to wrap our patients with the comprehensive care they deserve.

We meet patients where they are. Whether in our offices or virtually from the comfort of their home through tele-health, Acadia makes patient access easy. Acadia Hospital's services reach deep into our communities through many specialized programs including our Behavioral Health Home, Opioid Health Home, military veteran programming, Integrated Behavioral Health in primary care practices, and school-based clinician services.

Beyond these programs, we're strong advocates for the advancement of behavioral and mental health through our partnerships with the Yellow Tulip Project, our award-winning Acadia CARES program, LGBTQ+ advocacy, and much more. 

Acadia Hospital is a member of Northern Light Health, an integrated health delivery system in Maine with 10 hospitals, home care and hospice, emergency transport network, population health company, and retail pharmacy.
