Patient Safety

Every day at Eastern Maine Medical Center, patients entrust to us their most cherished and personal possession: their health. This trust is important to us, as we further our mission of caring for patients, families, communities and one another. Patient safety is our first priority. That is our commitment to you.

EMMC is accredited by JCAHO, the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. JCAHO is an independent national surveyor that ensures EMMC and other hospitals are providing the best quality care we can to our patients. We pride ourselves on that superior level of quality and service. As your medical center, we are working for you and your family to keep you safe and comfortable. We count on you to help us with that goal. When it comes to healthcare so many factors and details may affect your care. Help us make your care as safe and effective as possible by taking an active role in your own healthcare. To view our online guide for patients and families, click here.
