ME health system plan to take over hospital draws opposition
Central Maine Healthcare moved forward with plans to take over Parkview Adventist Medical Center in Brunswick with a filing Wednesday to the Department of Health and Human Services, though neighboring Mid Coast Hospital said Thursday that it will oppose the move with a counter-proposal. Chuck Gill, vice president for public affairs for Central Maine Healthcare, which is the parent organization of Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston as well as Bridgton and Rumford hospitals, said Thursday that he filed a Certificate of Need application with the state on Wednesday. He said he expects it will take up to three months for the state to approve or reject the application, which would give CMHC overarching administrative control of Parkview, though Parkview’s local board of directors would remain in place.
