Investing in the Future of Healthcare
Stephens Memorial Hospital 2017 Annual Fund
For 60 years Stephens Memorial Hospital and friends like you have championed the need for quality healthcare in western Maine. From its humble beginnings to our current facility the staff at Stephens Memorial Hospital has been able to provide exceptional medical care because of the commitment of our staff and the generous financial support from our community.
As your local community hospital, we rely on the generous support of important friends like you to meet the hospital’s ongoing needs. In the past few years donations to Stephens Memorial Hospital from generous community members have allowed us to purchase much needed equipment, participate in the Maine Medical Center/Tufts Medical student program and provide funds to relocate and expand our cancer program. These have been important investments in delivering quality care to our patients. We know that you deserve and expect quality healthcare services, and we continue to work hard to deliver it. Your support will provide crucial funding to meet our community’s healthcare needs of everyone – regardless of their ability to pay.
Your gift to the 2017 Annual Fund will directly benefit our Emergency Services Department, helping to fund the purchase of a new portable X-ray machine and making other investments, ensuring the very best emergency care possible continues, right here, close to home. A new portable x-ray will be an important addition. The unit will be utilized most often in the Emergency Department, but will improve care for patients in all departments. A significant improvement for critically ill patients, the technology of this machine allows technicians to capture images at bedside requiring minimal, if any, repositioning of the patient. The images produced are digital and available instantly.
By partnering with us, you’ll help ensure a high quality, accessible, and affordable health care system is here—for you, your family, and for all of western Maine.
