We’re Better Together.

This is an exciting time for healthcare in the Midcoast. On December 1, 2015, the two healthcare systems known as Pen Bay Healthcare and Waldo County Healthcare began operating as one system. We have created one volunteer board with representatives from both Pen Bay and Waldo and one executive administrative team under the leadership of Mark Biscone, President and CEO. Under this model, we are successfully collaborating in nearly 50 administrative and clinical areas. These collaborative programs allow us to increase access to specialty services across Knox and Waldo Counties while improving quality and decreasing our operational costs. In the spirit of collaboration, we are creating one foundation. The Pen Bay Waldo Healthcare Foundation will have volunteer representation from both hospitals and raise money for use across the entire health system. For more than 40 years, donors like you have made Pen Bay Medical Center a trusted source for care. As we transition to this new partnership, your gifts will continue to

Employees Give More than $60,000 in Annual Drive Employees donated $60,338 in the 2015 Employee Annual Campaign, more than three times the initial fundraising goal. The effort kicked off at the Employee Chili-cookoff held on Sept. 18 and the success was announced at the Pen Bay Medical Center Holiday Party on Dec. 11. Gifts continued to roll in through the end of the year, showing just how strongly our colleagues believe in helping family, friends and neighbors be healthy and well.

Tree Lighting Celebrates Sussman House Anniversary

Focus Group Offers Contemporary Insights

In December 2015, dozens of trees along Anchor Drive on the Pen Bay Medical Center campus were illuminated and more than 100 people attended the inaugural Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony. The event honored patients, families, donors and businesses who have made the Sussman House a success. Paid for entirely with gifts from the community, the Sussman House is the first and only stand-alone hospice care facility in Midcoast Maine.

Looking to learn more about the millennial generation’s thoughts on healthcare, the Pen Bay Healthcare Foundation and approximately 30 community leaders born since 1980 formed the New Leadership Council. The Council meets monthly and is currently raising funds to expand and improve the walking trail system at Pen Bay Medical Center. The project will add more trails, an observation deck and ten outdoor exercise stations for staff and community use.


“Most of the people here could be any of us any day.” — Laura Bickford, RN


Laura Bickford tackles mental health and substance abuse every day. Registered Nurse Laura Bickford has helped patients overcome addiction and psychiatric challenges at the Psychiatric and Addiction Recovery Center (PARC) at Pen Bay Medical Center for 18 years. She says the shame of those diseases means patients aren’t always visible in the community, but their struggles are more common than many people think.

Tell me a bit about the history of PARC. When this unit was built 22-23 years ago, the hospital had a six bed, unsecured mental health unit and patients were admitted for extended periods of time. An assessment was completed that determined our community needed both psychiatric care and substance abuse, so PARC was born. For most of the time I’ve been here we treated mostly psychiatric patients and some patients with alcohol detox. That’s changed. What used to be mainly alcohol detox is now mostly patients who are abusing multiple substances.

In 18 years, PARC must have helped a lot of people get better. Do any stick out in your mind? Therapy options at PARC were recently expanded with the addition of a new outdoor seating area overlooking Penobscot Bay. Patients and staff can now head outside for meetings, counseling, or just to relax. The project, which cost approximately $35,000, was funded entirely by donors.

Just recently we had a young woman come in. She was probably in her late 20s, 30 weeks pregnant with her second child with no prenatal care. She was severely addicted to opiates, an IV heroin user. I’m not sure our community even realizes how often we see pregnant women who are addicted and they hide it because it’s shameful. But it’s real.

 Laura Bickford, RN at the Psychiatric and Addiction

So our success story for this woman was providing her with prenatal care and getting her an intake to a rehab facility that prioritizes women who are pregnant or have children.

Recovery Center.

We’re Better Together.

That was recently, so her story’s still going, but she called and told us she was very thankful for all we did. She sounded wonderful.

How has working in PARC changed your view of psychiatric and addiction medicine? Even though I’d experienced it in nursing school, I think my perception of a psychiatric unit was very different from reality. It’s not like “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.” Any of us could become depressed because of an imbalance in our hormones or chemicals in our brain, or because we just go through life events that are very difficult. Most of the people here could be any of us any day.

What does the PARC team look like? We’re a multi-disciplinary treatment team. We have two full-time psychiatrists who each manage a treatment team. We also have nurse practitioners who help us treat the patients and provide psychological consults for patients in the emergency department or medical surgery. Each team member from the psychiatrist to the housekeeper is highly respected. We consider everybody’s input which is really the best thing for the patient. That team atmosphere is great.



After bicyclist Madelyn Rockwell was hit by a car, Pen Bay Outpatient Physical and Occupational Therapy gave her the courage to ride again.

We’re Better Together.

At first, Madelyn Rockwell didn’t know she’d been hit. She was on her bicycle, enjoying a ride along winding Knox County roads that provide beautiful scenery but little in the way of protection from traffic. Headed towards her home in Port Clyde, she felt something nudge her rear wheel. A moment later, she was on the ground, watching the car that knocked her down continue on its way. The driver hadn’t even seen her. “The scary thing is not being in control,” Madelyn said. “I’m wearing hot pink and bright yellow, a helmet and staying in the perfect lane and doing the right things but you know, they’re only going to see you if they’re looking.” Someone who did see the accident tracked down the driver while another driver helped Madelyn and called for an ambulance. When she got to Pen Bay Medical Center, she learned she’d fractured her pelvis, hurt her left shoulder and suffered a lot of bumps and bruises. And then the hard work of recovery started. Madelyn soon realized that getting better would be as much about believing in herself as healing her bones. She spent months undergoing physical therapy at Pen Bay Medical Center, multiple times each week and said because the


staff there helped her emotionally as much as physically, she was able to recover quickly. “I was so fragile in that I was scared. I’ve never been injured like that, and I needed somebody to physically be my therapist and emotionally hold my hand and tell me I could do it,” Madelyn said. “My physical therapist showed me I could walk and yeah, it hurt and I had limitations, but she showed me I could.” Shortly after completing her physical therapy sessions, Madelyn found a friend and took a short ride. She did it on a quiet side street and then, once she overcame the initial fear of being hit again, worked up to riding alone, on the hills in western Knox County that provide both the physical challenge and beautiful scenery she loves. Now, a year and a half later, Madelyn said she would be out on 40-mile-long rides every day of the week if the weather would cooperate. “I just really love being outdoors. I really love these beautiful backroads.”

“I needed somebody…to hold my hand and tell me I could do it.” — Madelyn Rockwell

Grateful Patient Madelyn and her family have chosen to support Pen Bay Medical Center as an investment in their community. They hosted a Pen Bay Healthcare Foundation event in Port Clyde last summer and contribute to the annual fund. “We believe in having a local hospital that you can count on and that you know has quality care,” Madelyn said.


The Pen Bay Healthcare Foundation began 2015 by concluding the Better Together capital campaign, for which donors gave nearly $14 million. The campaign powered expansions to the Picker Family Resource Center, The Bob Gagnon Cancer Suite, Ann Bresnahan Center for Excellence, Physicians Fund for Clinical Excellence, and the Birth Center. Meanwhile, donors like you provided more than $500,000 for the Annual Fund, much of which was dedicated to providing charity care to those in need in our community. This kind of support not only eases the operating budget, it allows Pen Bay Medical Center to be more responsive to the needs of our changing community, and lets donors like you play a role in helping your friends, family and neighbors stay healthy.

“Our donors make a huge difference in the lives of people we know and love, right here in Midcoast Maine.” — Joanne Billington Pen Bay Healthcare Foundation Chair, Board of Trustees

Quarry Hill residents living with dementia and Alzheimer’s are finding ways to connect with treasured life experiences thanks to the Music and Memory project.

“The hidden gem here is that music can reduce the need for pain and anti-psychotic medications.” — Kristine Lerner

How does it work? Donated iPods are loaded with personalized music playlists that tap residents’ deep memories and provide stimulation and comfort. Spearheaded by volunteer Kristine Lerner and Quarry Hill Retirement Community Executive Director Mary Sargent, this project has been entirely supported by community gifts of iPods, music, cash donations and volunteer time.
