Medical Practices to Return to Medical Arts Center
Franklin Health Pediatrics, Surgery, and Urology reopen on September 13
September 7, 2010
Seven months after a fire extensively damaged the east wing of the Franklin Health Medical Arts Center hospital officials have announced that Franklin Health Pediatrics, Surgery, and Urology will reoccupy their offices in the center on Monday, September 13.
A health facilities specialist for the Medical Division of Licensing and Regulatory Services of the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, the State Fire Marshal’s Office, and local code enforcement officials have all inspected the affected wing of the building and given the green light to reoccupy.
“Indoor air quality surveys of the areas that will reopen have also been conducted,” said Gerald Cayer, Franklin Community Health Network executive vice president. “The preliminary reports indicated no unusual conditions with all air sampling analytic results within or below applicable indoor air guidelines.”
Also affected by office relocations last February was Franklin Health Child & Adolescent Pediatrics (Dr. Iris Silverstein). Its offices were moved to a different location in the Mt. Blue Health Center to accommodate the displaced Franklin Health Surgery’s need for clinical space. Dr. Silverstein and her colleagues will additionally reopen in their original offices during the week of September 13.
The 58,000 square foot Medical Arts Center also houses [Franklin Health] Women’s Care, Orthopaedics, and the Martha B. Webber Breast Care Center. Health Information Management (medical records) is located on the ground level.
