The Difference in Care

EMHS Awards and Recognition

Across our healthcare system EMHS members strive to achieve excellence so that our Maine communities benefit from the very best healthcare practices and care available. The more than 11,000 employees of EMHS consult with one another, sharing ideas, experience, and expertise, so the care we deliver is better and more efficient. It is this collaboration that makes us stronger by providing seamless care for those patients who access our multiple organizations across the system. Our awards and recognitions are like benchmarks and milestones. When others across the nation take the time to recognize the dedication and hard work of our employees, we can feel good knowing we are on the right path to achieving our goals and providing our patients with exceptional care. Below are some of the award and recognitions we are proud to share.
