The hospital is opening a new walk-in care facility on Main Street in East Millinocket.
Residents who need non-emergency treatment can come in without an appointment and be helped much quicker than they might at the hospital.
CEO Robert Peterson stated "Rather than going to the ER and suffering long waits sometimes, this is an alternative for them to get care very quickly, very efficiently, at a lower price. So we're hoping that the patients of our region will utilize this for minor illnesses."
The hospital has hired two nurse practitioners to work at the facility which opens on Monday, August 28th.
