Maine General Health OnBoarding

 

New Regional Hospital

It’s an exciting time to be part of MaineGeneral! Our vision of regionalizing health care in the Kennebec Valley is now a reality.

 

With 192 private rooms, the hospital is designed to bring our communities the best in patient and family-centered care. It is scheduled to open in the summer of 2014. The Thayer Comprehensive Outpatient Center, with its 24/7 Emergency Department and full array of outpatient services will open in spring 2015.

Fun Facts About Our Project:

 

  • It will be the first health care facility in Maine to be built to the new 2010 Silver LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) for Healthcare Standards.
  • It will save 12 million gallons of water annually.
  • It will save $730,000 annually in heating and cooling costs
  • Computerized 3-D design technology will be used to virtually construct the building, reducing the need to redo the design in the field.
  • From start to finish, about 30 subcontractors (approximately 90 percent from Maine) will participate in the project for a total of $160 million.
  • At its peak, the project is expected to employ 630 people per day.
  • Every hour for 34 months, $40,000 will be spent in construction dollars.
