Date: 12/28/2021

Northern Light Mercy Hospital will open its new emergency department at 175 Fore River Parkway in Portland one week from today on January 4, 2022. The existing emergency department at 144 State Street in Portland will close the same day. 

Earlier today, hospital president Charlie Therrien hosted members of the media for a tour of the new emergency department before it opens to patients next week. A few photos of the facility and from the tour can be downloaded here.
The relocation of the emergency department to Mercy’s newly expanded Fore River campus will be the final clinical program to move from its State Street hospital, marking the final step in its campus consolidation. The new emergency department will feature a dedicated parking lot for its patients, offering quick access to care. There will also be a new patient drop off area for ambulances that is covered and protected from the elements, providing increased safety, convenience, and comfort.
