Many patients and their families are grateful for the extraordinary care they have received at Maine Medical Center. Thanks to their support—along with the commitment from our doctors, nurses and scientists—we are able to meet today’s rapidly-changing health care needs.
Please join us in helping to advance patient care further by supporting our patient-centered mission: caring for our communities, educating tomorrow’s caregivers and researching new ways to provide care. Our philanthropy liaisons will listen to your particular goals and connect you with appropriate giving opportunities. Your generosity can speed research from the laboratory to the bedside, modernize infrastructure, establish scholarships or create other meaningful projects.
