I want to take a moment to express my gratitude for the privilege of serving you and your families at Franklin Community Health Network (FCHN).

We understand the vital role that Franklin Memorial Hospital and our Franklin Health practices play in our rural Maine community, providing essential health care services to those who need them most. Our hospital and health network are not just a place to receive medical treatment but a hub for health education, community events and partnerships with local organizations.

We believe that our hospital is an important part of the community, providing not only health care but also economic stability and growth. We are committed to investing in our community and providing quality health care services that meet the unique needs of rural Maine.

As a community hospital and health network, we are here for you, regardless of your health care needs. From routine check-ups and preventative care to emergency medical treatment, our dedicated team of health care professionals is here to provide you with the highest quality care possible. As a member of the MaineHealth system, we have access to a vast network of health care professionals and specialists, which allows for greater collaboration and a more comprehensive and innovative approach to patient care.

We understand these are uncertain times and we want you to know we are committed to supporting our community. We encourage you to follow public health officials' guidelines, including wearing a mask when appropriate and getting vaccinated if you can.

Thank you for your support and partnership as we work together to keep our community healthy.
