Investing in the Future of Healthcare
Stephens Memorial Hospital 2019 Annual Fund
For over 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.
We have just received approval to build a new medical office building on the Stephens Memorial Hospital campus in Norway. This is tremendous news for our community and reinforces our commitment to providing high-quality care, close to home.
This beautiful, patient-friendly facility will allow us to offer many new innovative services to the residents of western Maine. The first floor will be home to the Stephens Memorial Hospital Physical Rehabilitation department, currently located in the lower level of the Ripley Medical Office Building. The space will double in treatment size and be designed to enhance rehabilitation services by encompassing a newly designed gym and patient exam rooms.
This year, the 2019 Stephens Memorial Hospital Annual Fund, will help fund the purchase new equipment including: a ceiling mounted Gait Trainer, which is commonly used for people who have had a stroke or spinal cord injury in assisting them to walking and standing faster; a multi-purpose room simulating a home environment for patients to practice activities of daily living as part of their treatment; and a dedicated group-exercise room, which will accommodate exercise classes of up to 14 people.
