Quality Orthopaedic Care
Now there’s no need to travel to Boston or New York or any other larger metropolitan area for top orthopaedic care. It’s all right here at the Orthopaedic Institute of Central Maine (OICM).
The OICM is an orthopaedic destination of excellence, with highly experienced, board-certified surgeons – the latest procedures and technology – plus genuine care and compassion from orthopaedic-trained nurses and clinical team members. In short, the OICM represents the highest level of care – the level you would expect in large metropolitan hospitals, but that’s now available in our local community.
The OICM has been designated as a Blue Distinction Center for Hip and Knee Replacement®. Blue Distinction is awarded based on expertise in quality care, resulting in better overall outcomes for patients, by meeting objective clinical measures developed with input from expert physicians and medical organizations.
In 2018 Central Maine Medical Center received certification for quality of care in an array of orthopedic services. The areas of excellence highlighted in the certification are total hip replacement, total knee replacement, total shoulder replacement, and hip fracture. The certification came after a rigorous inspection by the Joint Commission.
