Mid Coast Hospital Celebrates Official Opening of the Parkview Campus

Generous $1.5 million in donations gifted in support

Ribbon cutting ceremonyMid Coast Hospital recently celebrated completion of a $6.2 million renovation and opening of its Parkview Campus at a ribbon-cutting ceremony held June 6. Combined with other projects, more than 44,000 square feet of the former hospital building has been reconditioned, now featuring an eight-provider primary care practice, a wellness education center, a comprehensive cancer care center, and administrative spaces.

"It has been three years since the integration of Mid Coast Health Services and Parkview Adventist Medical Center and we are here today to officially celebrate the reopening of the Mid Coast Hospital Parkview Campus," said Sandy Morrell Rooney, Mid Coast–Parkview Health Chair of the Board. "Already, these new state-of-the-art spaces are helping our patients and community members become healthier by focusing on prevention and wellness as the foundations of overall health."

The project was funded through a combination of debt financing and philanthropy. Harpswell residents Frank, Anne, and Frank Crooker, Jr. donated $1 million to benefit the Mid Coast Center for Community Health & Wellness. The wellness center—a 9,000-square foot area that brings Mid Coast Hospital wellness programs, education, and resources under one roof—is now officially named the Frank, Anne, and Frank Crooker, Jr. Wellness Center.

The wellness center offers quality health information, education, and resources to help with preventing and managing chronic disease. Programs offered by the center focus on cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation, medical exercise, weight loss, stress reduction, and tobacco cessation. New initiatives include medical exercise for cancer, stroke, and other chronic diseases, as well as a full array of cooking classes now available in the teaching kitchen.

Medical exercise gym

A cornerstone of the renovation is a brand new cancer center which is part of the MaineHealth Cancer Care Network, offering comprehensive cancer care in affiliation with MaineHealth and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston where patients receive expedited access to second opinions, treatment of rare cancers, and access to clinical trials. Brunswick residents, Sandy Morrell Rooney and Chuck Rooney donated $500,000 toward the completion of the cancer care center.

Anchored by Mid Coast Medical Group–Cancer and Blood Disorders—a three-provider medical oncology practice—the new cancer center allows patients easy access to cancer related services in one space, including medical oncology, infusion, laboratory, and medical exercise. A cancer resource center, affiliated with the American Cancer Society, is also available.

Family Practice at Parkview

In addition to the wellness and cancer centers, the renovation includes a 10,000-square foot primary care practice offering routine and preventive care for children and adults. Mid Coast Medical Group–Family Practice at Parkview includes eight physicians and more than 20 support staff, all working to provide patients with a foundation of health and wellness. The practice was built to accommodate delivery of preventive and chronic disease care, as well as integrated behavioral health counseling. This advanced model of adult care practice, known as a Patient-Centered Medical Home, is proven to improve patient outcomes and lower costs of healthcare.

This phase of the renovation began in 2016. Landry/French Construction of Portland acted as the building contractor and SMRT of Portland designed the interior spaces. At the event, special recognition was also given to Teresa and Peter Fogg of Wiscasset who helped expand Mid Coast Hospital’s Healing Environment Project to the Parkview Campus through curated art and interior recommendations.

In her remarks, Lois Skillings, President and CEO of Mid Coast–Parkview Health, said, "When we joined together with Parkview three years ago, we focused on creating a coordinated system of care to ensure this community has continued access to exceptional healthcare close to home. As promised, we are stronger as one."

She continued, "Today, Mid Coast–Parkview Health offers a wide breadth of integrated healthcare services, delivering around-the-clock access to high-quality care with more than 200 providers on our active medical staff practicing in over 30 primary care and specialty areas. We are here for our community every day, promoting wellness, delivering outstanding healthcare, and enhancing the quality of life for our patients. We are so grateful for your ongoing support."
