Message from the President
This past fiscal year was a pivotal year for our organization. Throughout the year, the Franklin Community Health Network board of directors engaged in a process to analyze strategic options for the network’s future and concluded that membership in the MaineHealth system would assure the delivery and quality of health care in the greater Franklin County area. The board believes that to be successful in the future, to offer the kind of high-quality care that patients expect, to expand access to wellness and population health promotion in a rapidly changing health care reform environment, community hospitals like Franklin Memorial cannot go it alone. This decision to become a member of MaineHealth best positions our organization to assure the provision of health care services for our communities for the next generation.
Our membership into the MaineHealth system was finalized on October 1, 2014. You will continue to receive the kind of high-quality care that you expect, and will see expanded access to wellness promotion initiatives.
Rebecca Arsenault, Franklin Community Health Network President & Chief Executive Officer
