About Maine Medical Center (MMC)
Maine Medical Center is a complete health care resource for the people of greater Portland, the entire state of Maine, and northern New England. Incorporated in 1868, MMC is the state’s largest medical center, licensed for 700 beds and employing more than 9,600 people. Maine Medical Center’s unique role as both a community hospital and a referral center requires an unparalleled depth and breadth of services, including the state’s only allopathic medical school program, through a partnership with Tufts University School of Medicine, and a world-class biomedical research center, the MaineHealth Institute for Research.
Our care model includes the state’s largest multi-specialty medical group, Maine Medical Partners. Maine Medical Partners provides a wide range of primary, specialty, and sub-specialty care delivered through a network of more than 40 locations throughout greater Portland.
Maine Medical Center is the flagship hospital of MaineHealth, which is an integrated health network comprising 12 local hospital and other health facilities that touch central, southern, and western Maine and eastern New Hampshire. The collaboration of MaineHealth’s local organizations allows greater availability to community health improvement programs, access to clinical trials and research, and shared electronic medical records.
The strength of the health system, anchored by Maine Medical Center, enables each organization to invest in shared programs and services that improve the quality of care while reducing costs whenever possible. As a nonprofit institution, Maine Medical Center has provided more than $200 million annually in community benefits, delivering care to those who need it, regardless of their ability to pay.
