An open invitation to honor or memorialize loved ones, a family or a business.
One of the greatest challenges communities face today is access to high quality primary care physicians and specialists. Last fall, a groundbreaking ceremony was held for Southern Maine Health Care’s (SMHC) Edward J. McGeachey Medical Office Building which will be located at 46 Barra Road in Biddeford. The facility will allow SMHC to expand access to primary care, orthopedic and neurology specialist care and enhanced rehabilitation services. To involve the community in this important project, the new medical office building has been designed to include many wonderful opportunities to honor or memorialize loved ones - or a family name or business - as well as honor SMHC’s President and CEO Edward J. McGeachey for his 38 years of service to our community.
“We are fortunate that we have an outstanding healthcare system, Southern Maine Health Care, whose providers and leadership are committed to ensuring that we, our loved ones and our neighbors receive excellent care close to home,” stated Campaign Chair Roland Eon of P&C Insurance. “SMHC has been there for me and my family when we needed it most; so I was thrilled to hear that the SMHC board of directors has honored Ed by naming the new medical office building after him. As a former long-time board member and chair of the board of Southern Maine Medical Center, I have seen first-hand the impact Ed’s leadership has had on the advancement of SMHC (formed in January when SMMC and Goodall Hospital merged). I hope you will join with me in participating in this project.”
Individuals or businesses may purchase various size pavers (6”x 12”, 12”x12”, 12”x18”, or 24”x24”), a bench or a room within the building to support SMHC’s continued pursuit of Excellence. Always. in health care. The deadline for ordering a paver is May 14, 2014.
McGeachey has spent his entire career dedicated to providing our community with the best possible health care. He is a respected leader who has led SMMC (now SMHC) to a point where today the organization is a nationally-recognized leader in quality, safety and patient experience. SMHC impacts our community in other ways, too, employing 2,200 local people and spending $76 million on goods and services - much of this locally.
