Central Maine Healthcare works closely with both local and state emergency transport services to ensure patients throughout our communities receive the critical medical care they need as quickly as possible.
By Ground: Ambulance Service
EMS (emergency medical services, also known as ambulance teams or paramedic services) are our first line of care. They are always at the ready, 24/7, to respond to an emergency or crisis, provide short-term interventions during transport and deliver a patient to a Central Maine ER with both speed and care.
By Air: LifeFlight
Central Maine Medical Center (CMMC) in Lewiston also a home base for the LifeFlight of Maine, the state’s only medical helicopter service. We transport critical trauma patients to CMMC for quick care, and helicopter pads at our Bridgton and Rumford locations also allow rapid transfer of critically ill or injured patients to CMMC. This network helps us provide faster treatment, leading to better outcomes.
