The Importance of Partnerships in Rural Maine

In June, Michelle Hood, president and CEO, EMHS, participated in an on-camera interview with H&HN (Hospitals and Health Networks), an American Hospital Association publication, about Maine’s unique challenges as a rural state and the need for innovation and collaboration to ensure access to healthcare services are available closer to home in all communities.

She addresses EMHS’ current discussions with Mayo Regional Hospital in Dover-Foxcroft, and is mindful to note that rural health organizations must align on values before taking steps to partner or merge.
