Campaign for Coastal Health
You are building the future of health care for mid coast Maine.
The Campaign for Coastal Health represents an investment in the delivery of excellent health care for everyone in mid coast Maine. With generous support from individuals and businesses in our community, as well as from foundations, we celebrated the opening of the Beebe Health Center in December 2020.
This brand new building on the Pen Bay Medical Center (PBMC) campus houses family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics and ENT practices. With this milestone behind us, we are now focused on raising the funds necessary to complete the critically needed renovation and expansion of the PBMC emergency department.
Phase I of the PBMC emergency department expansion and renovation is nearly complete!When complete, the emergency department renovation and expansion will provide a state-of-the-art facility and nearly double the exam rooms for patient care. The dramatically upgraded facility will improve access to emergency care providing:
- An increased number of rooms, from 13 to 21, including:
- A specialized behavioral health suite with three patient rooms, a patient lounge, a nurses station and a dedicated care team member workspace
- Two trauma rooms
- Reduced patient wait times and increased privacy for patients and visitors
Today, we are poised to become an even stronger hub for the primary care, specialty care and emergency care services that you, your family and your neighbors need. But we can’t do it without your help.
The Campaign for Coastal Health will ensure that PBMC can meet community health care needs in partnership with Waldo County General Hospital and other MaineHealth care locations. Our vision depends on your support. We invite you to join us in building the future of health care for mid coast Maine.
