Hospital dedicates report to staff
FORT KENT, Maine — Northern Maine Medical Center is dedicating its 2018 annual report to its employees for the unique role that each contributes to the quality of life of their patients each and every day.
The national recognition earned by the hospital this year is testimony to the 532 employees that are the face of NMMC. With a strong and stable workforce, a rise in employee engagement and lower turnover than the national rate, NMMC’s rising patient experience scores speak volumes. Countless anecdotes circulate weekly, if not daily, about the small things that make a big difference –employees going above and beyond for the patients in their care.
Peter Sirois, NMMC president and CEO, said, “Never before were the extraordinary men and women who represent Northern Maine Medical Center more engaged in the hospital’s mission than they demonstrated in 2018.”
A hospital is more than bricks and mortar –at the heart of the hospital is a caring team of individuals who makes exceptional care possible. NMMC employees embody the philosophy of Albert Schweitzer, who said, “The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others.”
