One of three patients from the October 25 mass casualty incident in Lewiston was upgraded yesterday from critical to stable condition. This means all three patients being cared for at Central Maine Medical Center are currently in stable condition.
“Our team is grateful to be able to share the news that another patient has been upgraded,” said John Alexander, chief medical office, Central Maine Healthcare. “As we move into a new week, we want the community to know that our hospitals and practices will remain open, however, please keep in mind that there may be occasions where some of the practices experience downtime as we continue to care for our community and for our team members who are receiving mental and emotional support.”
On the evening of the tragedy, Central Maine Medical Center assembled a team of more than a dozen surgeons with expertise in orthopedics, cardiovascular, thoracic, colorectal, plastic, urologic and general surgery. They were aided by more than 100 other physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other healthcare professionals, all of whom received training in mass casualty incidents.
The doctors, nurses and team members of CMMC extend our deepest condolences to everyone affected by this tragic event.
