NORWAY, Maine – Through a joint venture with MaineHealth and in partnership with Stephens Memorial Hospital, Concentra® open to Concentrate Oxford, an occupational health and emergency care center in the community of Oxford Hills. This collaboration will promote convenient, high-quality emergency care services to patients at Stephens Memorial Hospital, so patients receive the right care, in the right place, at the right time.

Concentra Oxford will give patients at Stephens Memorial Hospital and MaineHealth additional access to non-emergency care for minor injuries and illnesses that cannot wait for a primary care provider, but do not require an emergency room visit. Concentra clinicians will operate the Oxford Medical Center in close clinical collaboration with Stephens providers.

“Our community needs more immediate and more convenient access to high quality non-urgent care”, shares President of Stephens Memorial Hospital, Andrea Patstone. “We are thrilled with this partnership and excited to offer another affordable care option to our community in support of our vision of ‘working together to make our communities the healthiest in America’. “

Local employers can continue to use Concentra Oxford Medical Center for employer health services, including workers compensation, injury care, pre-employment and continuing examinations, physical and regulatory exams .

“Concentra has served Maine and the Oxford region as well as its employers for years as a provider of emergency and occupational health care,” said Maiya LaVerdure, Vice President of Operations at Concentra. “We look forward to providing emergency care to patients at Stephens Memorial Hospital as we continue to serve Maine employers and keep their employees strong, healthy and safe on the job.”

The clinic will be open Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.. Concentra accepts all major insurance plans and the Oxford Hills site welcomes patients two years of age and older. Patients under two years of age should consult a pediatrician.
