Thank you for your interest in Down East Community!

We are a 25-bed critical access facility in Machias, Maine, serving an area population of over 14,000 for primary care services, and more than 30,000 people for medical and surgical specialty services.

The hospital has an active medical staff of nearly 30 physicians, with a dozen more on courtesy staff. This well-established organization provides a broad host of primary care and specialty services. The new 30-bed Maine Veteran's Home adjacent to the hospital opened in the fall of 2005. The hospital also provides care for residents in a 28-bed nursing home. Other facilities include a Birthing Room, Blood Bank, CT-Scan, MRI, Nuclear Medicine, Digital Mammography, Occupational Therapy, Ultrasound, and a variety of additional Outpatient Services.

Located on the coast, the Machias Bay Area includes Machias and a number of neighboring towns and communities. Within this area you will find picturesque harbors dotted with fishing boats, colorful blueberry barrens, meandering rivers, and quintessential New England towns. Home to the University of Maine, we can offer a wonderful mix of diversity and cultural events. We have amazing scenery with great opportunities for those who enjoy the great outdoors and are willing to make a commitment to the community we serve.

Whether your ideal vacation includes a round of golf with an ocean view, fishing, a summer crafts festival, sea kayaking, shopping for treasures, hiking, visiting with puffins, boating or just sitting back and relaxing in a quiet place, you are ready to enjoy life Down East.
