Central Maine Orthopaedics and Central Maine Medical Center have developed an inpatient orthopaedic facility unlike any other in Maine; the Orthopaedic Institute of Central Maine (OICM). The OICM offers a specialized comprehensive continuum of care approach to patients. This service line approach has produced clinical outcomes that are among the best in the nation. Such outcomes include increased patient satisfaction, reduced length of stay, and significantly decreased readmission rates. The care is provided through highly trained, board-certified and fellowship trained orthopaedic specialists, and is complimented by a team of specialty trained allied health professionals. The unit also houses a physical therapy unit to provide rehabilitation services on site. Architecturally the OICM was created to de-institutionalize the patient experience through a hospitality aesthetic and prudent architectural flow, while maintaining a design that allows for excellent patient care.
