- Choose Excellence
Named by Avatar as one of the "Top 12 Exemplary Hospitals in the Nation" for overall patient satisfaction and “Best in the Nation” for outpatient care 3 years in a row, Southern Maine Medical Center (SMMC), a 150-bed not-for-profit, full service medical center, is a member of Maine Health and the largest home-based employer in York County -- one of Maine’s fastest growing regions. Located on the beautiful southern coast of Maine, SMMC is an hour and a half from Boston and 30 minutes south of Portland, recently named the "most livable" city in the U.S. by Forbes Magazine (article here).
- Excellence. Every Person. Every Time.
Southern Maine Medical Center (SMMC) and PrimeCare Physician Associates recently joined together to form SMMC PrimeCare Physicians, a multi-specialty medical division of Southern Maine Medical Center. PrimeCare Physician Associates received the highest possible rating for quality from the Maine Health Management Coalition for four consecutive years. The resulting healthcare group is now among the largest in Maine, bringing together over 40 primary care physicians and specialists located in Biddeford, Saco, Kennebunk, Old Orchard Beach, and York County’s largest medical center.
The agreement between SMMC and PrimeCare Physician Associates (now SMMC PrimeCare Physicians) breaks new ground, ensuring significant physician involvement in the governance and operations of Southern Maine Medical Center’s comprehensive health care delivery system. The SMMC Board and the new SMMC PrimeCare Physicians subsidiary both have an increased number of physicians. In addition, there is a newly created Joint Operating Committee with equal numbers of administrators and physicians who will work together to improve the health status of the community through patient care and education.
- Education and Training
All incoming physicians undergo a comprehensive orientation program designed to assist them in integrating into the medical community. There is a very comprehensive hospital information system making it easy for physicians to access test results in a timely fashion, and our physician offices have a state-of-the-art electronic medical records system, with great synergy between the hospital-based and physician office systems. Additionally, SMMC offers internal programs, such as our Dinner with Doctors series, presented by our physicians on a variety of topics, and we promote external educational seminars, conferences, and training opportunities available for all physicians.
