Q. When are you closed?
A. We are closed for all major holidays. No appointments are booked on these days and the medication refill line is unmanned.
Q. Do you ever close due to bad weather?
A. As a medical facility that is part of Maine Medical Center, we do not close during inclement weather. We will close, however, if power is lost for more than an hour and is not expected back on quickly. This becomes a safety issue and we must close and evacuate.
