Building Our Future
Delivering on our commitment to provide high-quality, state-of-the-art care, close to home, the Bob & Sandy Bahre Health Center, opened in October of 2020. The new medical office building, located on Stephens campus in Norway, provides state-of-the-art clinical space for specialists to serve the Oxford Hills community, resulting in shorter wait times for patients to see a specialist and in many cases eliminating the need for patients to travel for care.
The Health Center was named in honor of the late Bob Bahre and his wife Sandy, in recognition of their generous support over the years to the hospital and the community. Their generosity has been extensive across our community, state and beyond. Although their support is often quiet and anonymous, the impact of their giving is profound and touches many across our community.
The Bob & Sandy Bahre Health Center, is a collaboration between MaineHealth and Stephens Memorial Hospital and is evidence of how local communities benefit from being part of an integrated health care system.
The first floor is home to the SMH Physical Rehabilitation department. The new treatment space is double in size, finally allowing sufficient space to meet the need for this care in our community. The space enables us to enhance our physical, occupational and speech therapy programs overall, with new programming, equipment and space for group exercise
The second floor is home to the Stephens Center for Specialty Care, which provides expanded specialty care services with physicians from Portland-based Maine Medical Partners. Specialty care will include: Oncology, Cardiology, Urology, and Audiology, with opportunity for additional services to be added in the future.
