There is no condition change for the three remaining patients at Central Maine Medical Center who were brought to the hospital following the mass casualty event in Lewison on Oct. 25. All remain in stable condition.
Today is the two-week mark since the patients were brought into the Central Maine Healthcare (CMH) Emergency Department.
“It’s hard to believe so much time has passed since these patients were first admitted, because to many of us, it seems like yesterday,” said John Alexander, chief medical officer, Central Maine Healthcare. “As a community, we have all been through so much-our patients, our team members here at CMH, our families, friends and neighbors.
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.
As part of our ongoing responsibility to continue serving as the regional trauma center for central Maine, we have established the CMMC Compassionate Care Fund for Trauma Response and Support. To donate, please click here. Link: cmhc.org/cmmc/ways-to-give
