Eastern Maine Medical Center
The Eastern Maine Medical Center modernization project utilizes evidence-based design and the principles of patient-centered care in its approach to interior design. Each private patient room is designed to accommodate family members and provide a warm and relaxing atmosphere for healing. Patient bathrooms include a European shower concept which increases accessibility for patients with limited mobility.
Family lounges are included on inpatient floors creating a place of retreat and contemplation outside of the patient room. Each lounge includes a fire place and panoramic views of the river in a home-like setting. These elements were also integrated into the main lobby where a stone fireplace and interior plantings echo the Maine landscape and create a warm welcome for patients, families, and staff. Throughout the hospital special attention was paid to sourcing local, low-maintenance, and sustainable materials for finishes as well as creating opportunities to utilize natural light and energy efficient fixtures.
