About us

Greater Franklin County is tucked in the beautiful western mountain foothills of Maine, one of the most spectacular places in New England. This quaint, four-season region offers numerous opportunities for its 40,000 residents, including a nationally-acclaimed health care system, pristine lakes, panoramic views and bustling downtowns with a distinct local flavor.

The region's health care is served by Franklin Community Health Network, a locally controlled, nonprofit, integrated network of rural health care providers, created by Franklin Memorial Hospital in 1991. Our affiliates include Franklin Memorial Hospital, Franklin Health medical practices, Evergreen Behavioral Services, Healthy Community Coalition of Greater Franklin County, and NorthStar EMS, the region's ambulance service. We have been part of the MaineHealth system since October 2014.

Our mission is to work cooperatively with others to achieve the highest level of health and wellness possible for the people of West Central Maine.
