YARMOUTH, ME and SOUTH PORTLAND, ME--(Marketwire - Jul 12, 2012) - InterMed, a premier Maine-based healthcare provider, today announced significant progress in its efforts to accommodate increasing patient demand and offer a greater range of specialty practices in Southern Maine. Today, InterMed marked the completion of an extensive renovation and expansion project with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at its 259 Main Street location in Yarmouth Village.
As a part of the project at its Yarmouth Health Center, InterMed added more than 10,000 square feet to the facility. The added space will house their new OB/GYN practice, in addition to an expansion of its existing family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics and physical therapy practices. The village-themed campus features a clock tower, coordinated access and circulation, pedestrian pathways and landscaping, including 13 October Red Glory trees dedicated to the Rowe School kindergarten and first-grade classes. InterMed physicians and staff collaborated with the developer, town officials and the community to design patient-focused office space and exam rooms.
InterMed also announced the addition of a pediatric practice at its 100 Foden Road location in South Portland. Effective Aug. 1, pediatricians Kristen Haddon, Andrew Tenenbaum and Margaret Zamboni, and Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Karen Weiss will join InterMed from the University of New England's University Health Care for Kids Practice in Portland. Entering a community partnership with the university, InterMed will expand and support pediatric services with a ready supply of physicians, health care professionals and students seeking training and employment opportunities.
"As a physician-owned practice, we have the ability to make vital decisions and plans for the future based on the unique needs of the patients and the communities we serve," said Dan McCormack, CEO, InterMed. "The entire InterMed staff was involved in both projects from the very beginning. The result is two health care centers that will position us for continued success and allow us to focus on our goal -- quality healthcare where the patient always comes first."
"InterMed's decision to remain in Yarmouth is a long-term investment in the community," said Nat Tupper, Yarmouth Town Manager. "Their role in the Village extends beyond providing excellent health care, and the new and improved site mirrors this historical legacy and commitment. We are thrilled to have the practice remain in town and look forward to continuing our deep-rooted, positive relationship."
InterMed established its presence in Yarmouth Village in 1986 with a 14,750-square-foot facility. Prior to the expansion, nine physicians were based at the location with services including family practice, pediatrics, internal medicine and physical therapy.
