Camden — Camden National Bank announced a $250,000 commitment to Pen Bay Medical Center to provide early funding for the construction of a new 41,513-square-foot health center at the hospital’s campus in Rockport. Construction on the new building begins in July, and it will be ready for occupancy in late summer 2020.

The new Health Center will be a two-story standalone building with the main entrance on Anchor Drive. In addition to a community room, the first floor will house the pediatrics, audiology and speech pathology, and ear, nose and throat practices, as well as pediatric physical and occupational therapy.

The Health Center will also provide space where specialists from the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center in Portland can meet with patients in Rockport, reducing the need for children with special health needs to travel to Portland. The second floor will house the internal medicine, family medicine and psychiatry practices, as well as the Integrated Medication Assisted Treatment practice for treating opioid use disorder.
