Memorial Hospital is at the forefront in digital imaging. The procedures performed in our department are filmless. All images from radiology are stored and read on PACS (Picture Archiving and Communications Systems). We were the first small hospital in New England to use digital technology, and we are the only hospital in the region with all the major diagnostic imaging services accredited by the American College of Radiology.
There's no need to travel far for high-quality surgical care from a team of experienced surgeons. Memorial Hospital’s new Surgical Suite, located on the main campus, houses the practices of our expert Surgical Services team. Our surgeons are supported by a skilled team of Registered Nurses, Certified Surgical Technicians, surgeons, and Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists.
Battling cancer can be one of life's biggest challenges and we feel patients should have everything they need close to home. Thanks to our affiliation with the specialists at the Maine Center for Cancer Medicine, one of the top oncology groups in New England, patients can be treated for cancer right here.
