Sanford Medical Center Construction Updates – Our Commitment to the Community
Southern Maine Health Care is excited to begin work on the transformative plan to expand and improve health services provided at its medical center in Sanford. These projects will significantly enhance and expand the scope of health services we offer 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.
Both projects will get underway in 2019 with anticipated completion in Fall of 2020.
