Primary Care

Primary Care at Central Maine Healthcare

Primary care at CMHC includes health promotion, disease prevention, health maintenance, counseling, patient education, diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic illnesses in an outpatient, office setting. Primary care is performed and managed by a personal provider often collaborating with other providers, and utilizing consultation or referral as appropriate.

Your primary care provider is your advocate in the health care system by helping to coordinate all of your health care services. At CMHC, our primary care providers promote effective communication with patients and encourage the role of the patient as a partner in health care.

Primary care is as much about prevention and education as it is about treatment and management of chronic diseases. Your primary care provider is your first line of defense for helping you stay healthy.
