Care Coordinators

Northern Maine Medical Center’s RN Care Coordination program provides necessary assistance to patients by promoting preventive care to improve well-being and self-management of chronic, complex disease processes.

RN Care Coordinators reach out to patients who have had an ER (Emergency Room) visit or have recently been hospitalized. RN Care Coordinators support patients in the decision-making in their health management.  

Northern Maine Medical Center’s Care Coordinators provide patient education on disease processes, medications, treatment plans and assess patient needs for follow-up care or available community benefits. The objective is for the patient to receive the best quality of care and optimize wellbeing.
