These links were sent from Basak Alkan, the Senior Urban Designer for the Maine Medical Expansion Project, and Penelope St. Louis, the lead liaison for the Maine Medical Center Expansion Team. They want these links to be shared with the neighbors in the vicinity of Maine Medical Center, the West End and anyone of interest or concern. They include preliminary drafts of the Institution Development Plan, Overlay Zone and the link to Maine Med’s website, dedicated to the campus transformation.

The main focus of the expansion is to create private rooms for all patients. As it stands right now, there are not enough rooms to house all in need of hospital services because of factors such as gender and disease that prohibit the sharing of rooms between patients. Evidently, the patient overflow can be substantial at times causing hospital services to be compromised for patients in need.
