Mid Coast Parkview Health joins the MaineHealth family

March 02, 2020

Mid Coast–Parkview Health has had a relationship with MaineHealth as an affiliate for many years. Last year, Mid Coast–Parkview Health undertook a thorough and inclusive process to evaluate potential partnerships that would sustain the organization into the future. The result was a decision to join MaineHealth.

“This partnership is a great fit for both organizations. In an ever-challenging environment for local health systems, MaineHealth provides scale and expertise with a commitment to excellent, patient-centered care and support for our local communities,” said Rich Petersen, president of MaineHealth.

“Mid Coast–Parkview Health not only serves communities within MaineHealth’s larger service area, but also shares similar values and is supportive of the MaineHealth vision of “working together so our communities are the healthiest in America,” said Lois Skillings, president of Mid Coast–Parkview Health.

In the coming months, teams from MaineHealth and Mid Coast–Parkview Health will be working together to fully integrate with MaineHealth, including transitioning Mid Coast–Parkview Health to the Epic medical records platform next year.

Over the next three months, Mid Coast–Parkview Health will also join with two other local health systems – LincolnHealth and Coastal Healthcare Alliance, which includes Pen Bay Medical Center and Waldo County General Hospital – in a regional strategic planning process.
