Downeast Community Hospital introduces new rehab department

MACHIAS - Good news for Washington County. The doors opened on the newly expanded rehabilitation department at Downeast Community Hospital in Machias on Wednesday.

CEO Dennis Welsh said "Now the therapists have the room. Before they were kind of constricted in their little space. They just didn't have the opportunity."

 

Welsh stated the rehab department is experiencing double digit growth. And in the near future, a $4.5 million emergency room renovation will be completed.
