Message From The President
A Message from Bridgton Hospital President R. David Frum: We Are Here to Provide Our Communities the Best of Care!
On behalf of the Board of Directors, physicians, managers, employees and volunteers, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Bridgton Hospital and Bridgton Hospital Physician Group website.
We hope our website will show you all that we offer the people of our communities. What matters most to us is providing the best medical care possible. We want that experience to always be positive.
As a small community-based hospital that is part of a larger medical family (Central Maine Healthcare), we believe we can offer our patients the best of all worlds: personal, quality care that includes access to the best medical technology and assistance available.
Our hospital and physician group provide a broad array of services for patients of all ages. For example:
- The Internal Medicine and Family practice is available at four convenient locations: Bridgton, North Bridgton, Fryeburg and Naples.
- Our Pediatric practice is at the hospital campus in Bridgton, as are Obstetrics/Gynecology and General Surgery.
- Our Specialty Clinics, all located on-site at Bridgton Hospital, offer a comprehensive scope of specialists, including Oncology and Hematology; Cardiology; Ear, Nose & Throat; Endocrinology; Infectious Diseases; Orthopedics and Sports Medicine; Pain Management and Urology.
- We are always adding new specialty clinics to meet the needs of our patients, so I encourage you to watch our website for announcements.
I also encourage you to consider our excellent performance, from a service and quality standpoint, when deciding where to receive medical care. While there are many websites that provide publicly reported results for hospitals, www.hospitalcompare.gov is the source the federal government uses to report results of quality and service at ALL hospitals in the country. I am extremely pleased to tell you our hospital has received the highest marks for service and quality. See how well we scored, at www.hospitalcompare.gov.
I encourage you to explore not only our website, but also our facilities. Our hospital is friendly, comfortable and staffed with people who care. Every member of our staff is committed to giving you the best experience. We are fortunate to be a member of Central Maine Healthcare, along with Rumford Hospital and Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston. This affiliation gives us access to many other resources (such as the Central Maine Heart & Vascular Institute) and other healthcare specialists, which allows patients to receive the best care close to home. If you have not visited us recently, you might not know about all the new services and providers we have brought to the hospital. You can learn more by taking a moment to look at the website.
Bridgton Hospital and the Bridgton Hospital Physician Group have a long history of serving Western Maine. We have served generations of families who live here year-round or seasonally. We consider ourselves an integral part of our communities. We look forward to meeting your healthcare needs for a lifetime.
Thank you again for stopping by.
In good health and with warmest regards,
R. David Frum
President & CEO
