Message from the CEO

Welcome to Millinocket Regional Hospital!  I am very proud to represent an extremely talented and dedicated staff that delivers healthcare services in the manner in which they should be delivered – with a profound respect and focus on the individual needs of each patient.    We may be a bit “old school”, but we believe that delivering care with compassion, personal attention, and careful diligence never goes “out-of-style”.  I can say with complete confidence that we treat every patient like family.  In a small community like ours, every patient is someone’s mom, dad, or child.  We tailor every aspect of our care around that very notion.

As a Critical Access Hospital we provide a full range of medical services including; emergency care, primary care, in-patient services, diagnostic services, surgery, and rehabilitation services.  We also provide ‘swing bed” services whereby care that is typically provided by skilled nursing facilities can be provided here following in-patient hospitalizations.  Because we are a bit smaller than most hospitals in the country, we are able to deliver an exceptional level of service and care that our patients have come to enjoy and expect.  I have spoken to many patients who have been patients elsewhere and they routinely tell me that Millinocket Regional Hospital is the best place to receive care by a considerable margin.  I never tire of hearing that and I welcome you to come and experience our very special hospital for yourself!  I am confident that you will immediately feel the same way!

CEO, Millinocket Regional Hospital
