Hospital could merge with EMHS

Big changes are coming to Maine Coast Memorial Hospital in Ellsworth.

It has filed a letter of intent with Eastern Maine Healthcare to form a closer relationship.

If all goes as planned, the hospital could become the ninth hospital under the EMHS umbrella.

The two organizations released a statement today saying the talks are part of a strategic planning process that will strengthen, enhance and preserve healthcare services for Hancock and Washington Counties.

People from both sides plan to spend the next 60 to 90 days working on a final agreement.

The deal is not expected to impact staffing levels at the hospital in Ellsworth.
