EMMC is celebrating 125 years! 

In 1892, Bangor General Hospital opened its doors with only five patient beds. Today, Eastern Maine Medical Center is a 411-bed medical center with more than 450 physicians, serving two-thirds of the state. A lot has changed over the years, but one thing remains the same: our communities can count on EMMC to be a tireless partner in working to improve and maintain the health of everyone we serve. We have a lot to celebrate, and we ask you to join us.

Join us as we celebrate 125 years of caring.
