Movin’ on up! It has been a long time coming, there has been a lot of planning and building and planning, but NOW is the time. The new hospital is opening this weekend!  So, what does this mean to you? Check out the details I found at MaineGeneral’s website about the move.

Let’s talk in-patients in Thayer in Waterville and old Augusta hospital; they will be moved to the new location.  It has all be thought-out and planned and coordinated with ambulance services, DOT, state and local police.  But for those of us not in the hospital here is the rundown:
