About Us

Maine Medical Center is a complete health care resource for the people of greater Portland, the entire state of Maine, and northern New England.

Incorporated in 1864, Maine Medical Center is the state’s largest medical center, licensed for 637 beds and employing more than 6,000 people. Maine Medical Center’s unique role as both a community hospital and a referral center requires an unparalleled depth and breadth of services, including the state’s only medical school, through a partnership with Tufts University School of Medicine, and a world-class biomedical research center, the Maine Medical Center Research Institute.

Our care model includes the state’s largest multispecialty medical group, Maine Medical Partners. Maine Medical Partners provides a wide range of primary, specialty, and subspecialty care delivered through a network of more than 40 locations throughout greater Portland.

Maine Medical Center is the flagship hospital of MaineHealth, a 12-member health system touching central, southern, and western Maine and eastern New Hampshire. The collaboration of MaineHealth’s members allows greater availability to community health improvement programs, access to clinical trials and research, and shared electronic medical records.

The strength of the health system, anchored by Maine Medical Center, enables its members to invest in shared programs and services that improve the quality of care while reducing costs whenever possible. As a nonprofit institution, Maine Medical Center has provided more than $190 million annually in community benefits, delivering care to those who need it, regardless of their ability to pay.
