April 19, 2015 - Eastern Maine Medical Center Expanding NICU

EMMC ModernizationEMMC ModernizationBangor, Maine's Eastern Maine Medical Center (EMMC) is the flagship medical center of Eastern Maine Health System. The EMMC modernization project is focused on creating opportunities for the hospital to adapt to emerging technology and modern procedures while accommodating increased demand on a limited footprint.

Since June of 2013, Fieldstone Media has been working side-by-side with the EMHS Foundation and EMMC to produce a series of videos that raise awareness of the new 361,000-square-foot patient tower that is being constructed and will open in 2017.

This new tower will have expansive views of the adjacent Penobscot River and is strategically designed to meet current needs and allow for future growth. The new tower will support a new sterile processing department, main lobby, heart center, surgical suite, NICU, two floors of private patient rooms, and a newly renovated labor and delivery center.

This latest video highlights the need for expanded NICU services that would include new technology, privacy for families and better patient outcomes.

The 29 single-bassinet rooms in the new NICU are designed to accommodate around-the-clock care for EMMC's most vulnerable patients. The NICU, 25 postpartum rooms, 32 inpatient telemetry rooms, and the 24-bed critical care unit all feature rooming-in accommodations for families, improving patient outcomes by enhancing the family's role in the healing process.
