Community Health and Wellness
Pen Bay Community Health & Wellness is dedicated to informing and empowering our colleagues, community members and area businesses to improve their health and wellness by providing health information, education and resources. We offer health education classes, screenings, events and outreach programs to help you stay well, learn about your health and manage your health conditions.
Pen Bay Medical Center and MaineHealth have a long-standing commitment to the health and well-being of our community and the people we serve. In keeping with that mission, MaineHealth and its member organizations offer a wide range of community programs and services free of charge. Each year the Community Benefit Report is published to share the compelling stories about the people and families whose lives are touched by the MaineHealth community, and the dedicated staff who provide that care.
