The region of Boothbay Harbor hugs the picturesque Maine coastline while nestled on a peninsula jutting fifteen miles into the Atlantic Ocean. This celebrated lobstering, fishing and boat-building community is home to approximately 7,000 year-round residents and swells to nearly 50,000 summer residents as families and tourists from around the world flock to this scenic resort.
While generations of families have enjoyed recreation amidst the cool, clean breezes of a Boothbay Harbor summer, the past decade has seen an explosion in the popularity of this quintessential New England village and its surrounding towns of Boothbay, East Boothbay, Edgecomb and Southport. Many who experienced the region's healthy, safe and clean environment as children have returned to retire on the peninsula or one of the many islands dotting the coastline.
In 1908, the first mid-coast hospital named for St. Andrew, the patron saint of local fishermen, opened its doors. Today LincolnHealth – St. Andrews Campus & Healthcare Center remains an essential element of the health and vitality in this rural community. In recognition of its role as an indispensable health care provider, the hospital was designated a Critical Access Hospital in 1999 by the state and federal government. This designation ensures that acute and primary care services are accessible and available for every member of the community.
St. Andrews is the only hospital north of the Carolinas that is accessible by land, air and sea. St. Andrews is equipped with a year-round boating dock available for local coastal emergencies plus a helicopter landing pad for transfer to other facilities. Our local ambulance service provides emergency transportation assistance for the entire region.
