Merger in Maine Creates New Hospital System

On March 1, Mayo Regional Hospital merged with Northern Light Health, expanding Northern Light Health to ten hospitals. Following a review process that allowed time for public input, the Maine Department of Health and Human Services granted a certificate of need in January. The merger intends to provide a “sustainable path forward” for Mayo and Northern Light Health to continue to provide rural healthcare in Piscataquis County, Maine, approximately two hours north of Portland.
