As a level II trauma center, our Advanced Surgical Care service provides a full range of surgical care (with the exception of organ transplants) which includes trauma surgery, open heart surgery, minimally invasive surgery, and robotic surgery. We are the first in Maine to acquire a second-generation robot and perform a vast range of robotic surgeries. Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center is a Total Joint Center of Excellence, and our nationally-renowned Patient Blood Management program has virtually eliminated the need for transfusions.
Our surgical suite has 22 operating rooms, 14 of which are newly renovated and include hybrid operating rooms and a state-of-the-art perioperative suite that has dedicated pre-operative and post-anesthesia care bays. Nurses are well-supported by team leaders for each specialty and a very accessible management team. Nurses have respectful, collaborative relationships with anesthesia providers and surgeons.
