(Bangor, Maine) November 15- Links Web Design is proud to announce the launching of a fully responsive website for Bucksport Regional Health Center. The BRHC provides affordable medical, dental, and behavioural services in the Bucksport area. They offer a sliding scale fee to make healthcare more affordable.
The mission of the Bucksport Regional Health Center is to service the primary health care needs of the people in their service area, and beyond, by providing an environment in which all patients can reach and maintain excellent emotional and physical health through the maintenance of a fiscally viable, compassionate organization that strives for excellence by respecting and preserving the dignity of both patients and employees.
Today the health center offers primary medical care, dental services and behavioral health and serves just under 8,000 people in Bucksport and 10 surrounding towns. They have a well-equipped staff to serve their patients’ needs. Bucksport Regional Health Center is a Federally Qualified Health Center and receives federal funding to allow the provision of services to all patients, regardless of their ability to pay.
Bucksport Regional Health Center first opened its doors 41 years ago on August 12, 1974 in the building that is now the Alamo Theater in downtown Bucksport. It was staffed by two paramedics and physician assistants, supervised by an Emergency Department physician from EMMC. The first week, they treated 54 patients. A typical office visits was $5.
BRHC encountered many hurdles to stay afloat, it not only survived, it thrived into what it is today. By 1978-79, the Center was serving about 6800 patients and a new facility, at 110 Broadway, where it is currently located, was opened on July 11, 1981.
On or about the 20th anniversary, the building acquired an addition to expand services. Later another addition was added to house the dental suite. In 2011, as part of the Affordable Care Act, BRHC received federal funding to expand the front of our building which now houses our education room and our Behavioral Health Services.
