Parkview Adventist Medical Center – Hospital in Brunswick, Maine

Emergency Services

Parkview’s ER is always staffed with Board-Certified physicians and specially-trained nursing and support personnel.  They are prepared to handle all manner of illness, injury, or trauma.   A special helipad behind the hospital allows Life Flight of Maine to land at Parkview and transport patients with life threatening injuries and conditions to Central Maine Medical Center.  The short helicopter ride to Lewiston means the difference between life and death for many patients.   Parkview’s special relationship with Central Maine Medical Center means your loved one has access to multi-tiered care from some of the state’s top physicians.
