Choose Excellence
When you enter a hospital or physician office for care, you need to know that you will receive the best diagnosis, treatment, and surgical technologies available provided by health care professionals you can trust. At Southern Maine Medical Center and SMMC PrimeCare Physicians, you can be reassured by our record of commitment that you have chosen excellence.

SMMC is one of the largest hospitals in the state of Maine, offering a comprehensive range of inpatient and outpatient medical, diagnostic and education services. But a hospital is more than just its physical plant; health care is primarily about people, and ours are the best and the brightest. Our health care professionals have credentials from some of the world’s leading medical schools and teaching centers. They could have worked anywhere. But they were drawn by SMMC’s innovative practices, our demonstrated commitment to growth and excellence, and the beauty of southern Maine.


Compassionate Care For All Ages
Qualified professionals, leading-edge technology, and uncompromisingly high standards of care come together at SMMC to ensure that each of us, our families, and our neighbors share premier-quality medical care within life-saving minutes of our homes and offices, day and night.
