Emergency Nursing

We're Expanding!

When the first phase of the project is complete in late 2008, Maine Medical Expanded Emergency Department includes a completely renovated acute Radiology Department.Center’s Emergency Department will have a six bed Trauma/Critical Care Suite, a six bed Acute Psychiatry Unit, and a new 23 bed Acute Care Unit with all private rooms. Also included in phase one is a completely renovated acute Radiology Department. This area will house a CT, two digital radiology rooms, an ultrasound room, reading room areas and the space for a second CT that will be added in the future.

The second phase will house our new 10-bed Pediatric Emergency Department – the only one of its kind in the state – and the Ambulatory Care Program, which has an urgent care focus. Each of these treatment areas has been designed, equipped and staffed to address the special needs of these populations. 

Phase three will provide new public spaces and an eight bed Clinical Decision Unit that will focus on observation medicine. 

The new public space will be a warm and welcoming area and take into account family needs when an emergency strikes. There are multiple waiting areas including one specifically for pediatric patients and families.  There are four Family Rooms available for times when more privacy is needed. There is a café area with Internet access so family members may connect with other family members, friends, employers, associates, etc.  Entire meals will be available in the café area for those experiencing long stays. Customer Service Representatives are available to assist families with other needs. 

These renovations are scheduled for completion in the spring of 2009.
