Although currently known as Northern Maine Medical Center, the hospital was formerly called Peoples Benevolent Hospital. The first section was opened in 1952 with an addition in 1971. The dedicated Catholic Order of Sisters, β€œLes Petites Franciscaines de Marie,” managed the hospital from its inception to 1975 when it became a public community hospital. 

Ultimately, Northern Maine Medical Center belongs to the 15,000 people in the hospital’s service area , the Upper St. John Valley and neighboring communities. Acting on their behalf, the hospital is guided by a Board of Trustees who represent these health care consumers. 

The Medical Staff of Northern Maine Medical Center is highly competent and qualified. Most are board certified in their specialty.

Doctors, Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners, 55 in total, are affiliated with the hospital. This professional pool of providers contributes to the broad number of specialty clinics which are offered on a scheduled basis which includes the full time staff of providers.
