About Us

Northern Light Blue Hill Hospital is a 25-bed critical access hospital in Blue Hill, Maine. 

Originally donated by Mrs. F.B. Richards in 1922, Northern Light Blue Hill Hospital is committed to improving the health of the communities we serve. Our Blue Hill community is a beautiful place, and the people who live here deserve the best care possible, as close to home as they can be. 

At Northern Light Blue Hill Hospital, we listen to our patients, and we also use community health data, like that collected in our Community Health Needs Assessment, to best serve our communities.

We welcome input from various groups, such as the Community Advisory Council and always respond to specific requests from our community partners, including local schools and nursing homes, and the Parker Ridge Retirement Community.

We collaborate with organizations including The Jackson Laboratory and Healthy Peninsula to deliver educational programs to the people we serve. These provide a significant community benefit at no cost to our local friends and neighbors. 

Working closely with our charity care patients, we identify programs that will cover their healthcare costs. When no coverage is available, we offer assistance programs to help ensure that every patient has access to the medical care they need and deserve.

We have outreach activities to keep our communities in the best health possible, including blood pressure screenings, presentations on nutrition, the annual Women’s Wellness Fair, early childhood development health fairs, an annual 5K race, and talks by our physicians and other providers around the region.

Northern Light Blue Hill Hospital is part of a not-for-profit organization.
