Sanford 450Southern Maine Health Care (SMHC) is hosting an open house on Tuesday, October 8 from 4 - 6 p.m. at the Sanford Medical Center, 25 June Street, in Sanford. The celebration is to kick-off­ the $34 million project that confirms SMHC’s continued commitment to invest in the Sanford community and York County. Join other community members for virtual tours and to hear about SMHC and Maine Behavioral Healthcare’s new behavioral health unit as well as Summer Commons, the new eldercare facility, both slated to open in 2020.

In January, Southern Maine Health Care (SMHC) announced plans to significantly enhance and expand the scope of health services it offers in Sanford to better meet the health needs of the local community and of greater York County. The plan calls for investments totaling $34 million to expand, enhance and add a variety of health services identified as critical to the local community. The plan includes construction of a new, modern long-term care center for older adults, the establishment of a short-stay, inpatient behavioral health care unit and general upgrades to the SMHC Medical Center in Sanford, formerly Goodall Hospital. The projects are in addition to more than $10 million of investment that has already been made in the facility’s technology, operations and outpatient services since the merger to form Southern Maine Health Care in 2014.

The public and media are welcome to join us for this special event. Please RSVP to or 207-283-7234. Refreshments will be provided.
