Memorial Hospital to host public forum on October 11, 2017

Come to Our Community Forum

Memorial Hospital will hold a public forum at the Red Jacket Resort on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at 5:30pm, to discuss a possible reorganization of MaineHealth.

MaineHealth is a not-for-profit network of providers and healthcare organizations committed to the health and well-being of the communities and people it serves. Memorial Hospital has been a member of MaineHealth since 2013.

For the past nine months, the member organizations of MaineHealth have been in preliminary discussions about reorganizing themselves under a single board of trustees and combined financial structure. The purpose of the forum is to have a community conversation about the proposed unification.

A panel comprised of Memorial Hospital President and CEO Scott McKinnon, Memorial Hospital Board Chairperson Laura Jawitz, MaineHealth President William Caron and others will lead the forum. The panel will discuss what it considers to be the benefits of unification and will answer questions from the audience.

“The proposal under discussion would create a single, system-wide board of trustees for MaineHealth,” stated Jawitz. “It would also leave in place local boards that would retain significant responsibility for the hospital services and other care delivered locally. MaineHealth and Memorial Hospital are interested in hearing from members of the community before any decisions are made.”
