The new Maine General Hospital has a new name for the new regional hospital. It will be called the ‘Alfond Center for Health.’ The new name was decided recently by the board of Maine General Health. They wanted to recognize the overall generosity of the Alfond family and foundation.

Over the years the Alfond Foundation has supported projects in education, health care, facilities and programs for kids, and a number of buildings, especially sports centers. The Alfond Foundation was founded in 1950 by Harold Alfond.
