Healthcare Facilities and Services in Central Maine
MaineGeneral Medical Center was created July, 1997 with the merger of Mid-Maine Medical Center in Waterville and Kennebec Valley Medical Center in Augusta. The Medical Centers are part of a network of health care services that make up the MaineGeneral Health system. Maine’s third largest health care system, MaineGeneral Health, provides residents of the greater Kennebec Valley a lifetime of health care available through one consolidated system.
MaineGeneral Medical Center in Waterville has two campuses – The Thayer Unit located on North Street and the Seton Unit on Chase Avenue. Among the services provided at the Thayer Unit are 24-hour emergency services, maternity, newborn and child health programs, critical care units, dialysis, inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures, and many diagnostic services. The Seton Unit is the site for acute rehabilitation. At the Rehabilitation Institute, patients and families work together with a team of rehab professionals dedicated to achieving greater independence for patients following a disease or disabling condition.
Specialized services for children and their families, and inpatient and outpatient mental health and substances abuse services are also provided at the Seton Unit. Also on the grounds of the Seton Unit is the Adolescent Recovery Program. MaineGeneral Medical Center is only one of two hospitals in Maine to provide inpatient treatment for teens with substance abuse problems and/or psychiatric difficulties.
As teaching hospitals, the MaineGeneral campuses in both Waterville and Augusta are clinical sites for the Maine-Dartmouth Family Practice Residency Program. Accredited since 1973, the Maine-Dartmouth Family Practice Residency Program is the oldest family practice residency in New England. It is affiliated with the Dartmouth Medical School. In addition to the hospitals, two family practice centers provide training for the 27 residents enrolled in the residency program. The Maine Dartmouth Family Practice in Fairfield is three miles from the Waterville hospital. MaineGeneral Medical Center offers many community education programs and services throughout the year. It also offers a variety of support groups in Waterville and Augusta.
In the greater Waterville region, MaineGeneral Medical Center, in partnership with other local health care providers, service agencies, and the United Way of Mid-Maine, form the Waterville Area PATCH Coalition. This group identifies and assigns priorities to unmet health, social, and community needs in the area.
