Mount Desert Island Hospital, a 25-bed critical access facility, serves this community and the surrounding areas. Founded in 1897, the hospital is located in the center of Bar Harbor and offers the advantage of a small, walkable community with a friendliness that is rare in our fast-paced, hectic world.
Mount Desert Island is one of Maine's most beautiful and renowned locations. Offering some of the most scenic shoreline in the United States, it is home to Acadia National Park, a 41,000 acre gem of granite cliffs, deep lakes and dense evergreen forests.
The area offers exceptional outdoor opportunities, particularly for boating, which has been described by experienced sailors as some of the best in the world. Archipelagos that include scores of uninhabited islands, astounding scenery, and a pristine environment, all provide an experience that is without equal.
