WBRC, in conjunction with Northern Light Health leadership, is working to design a modern new hospital in Blue Hill that reflects the highest standard of care and NLH’s patient-centered brand and mission.

This rural hospital modernization project replaces outdated hospital buildings on the existing campus. Inpatient care, 24/7 emergency services, lab and imaging, and specialty care are all part of this forthcoming community resource.

The new Northern Light Blue Hill Hospital will offer all private inpatient rooms, including a bathroom with shower. Inpatient rooms will feature up-to-date technology, infection prevention enhancements, and ample space for the care team.

The new hospital will provide a full-service emergency department with 24/7 coverage. An updated helipad to enable rapid medical transport is also part of the project.

The interior space plan for the new Northern Light Blue Hill Hospital includes dedicated facilities for primary care and select specialty care services, imaging, laboratory testing, rehabilitation services, cardiac rehab, and telehealth support.

To additionally support Hancock County patients, patient room renovations at Northern Light Maine Coast Hospital will also be completed, complimenting the changes at Northern Light Blue Hill Hospital.

Renovations to the existing Sussman Medical Office Building on the Blue Hill campus are also a part of this modernization project. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2022.
