Russ Keene, CEO AVHA Message from Our CEO

Dear Neighbor,

I’d like to share with you my excitement about this time of expansion and innovation at Androscoggin Valley Hospital.

We are very proud of our 2-North area, which features numerous exam rooms, office space and two comfortable reception areas.  This part of the Hospital is home to expanded and enhanced space for the following services:

Just one floor up, the Labor/Delivery Rooms in our Valley Birthplace received a complete makeover. Moms-to-be find a more comfortable, aesthetically pleasing environment, with flat-screen TVs, sofas, tables, rockers and completely updated bathrooms, featuring all-new tiling and lighting fixtures, plus bathtubs.  In addition, our nursery has been significantly expanded and enhanced.  What hasn’t changed is the unparalleled comfort and peace-of-mind that our OB/GYNs bring to expectant mothers and their families.

At the end of the day, our top priority is to ensure the highest level of quality healthcare to those whom we are so fortunate to serve. If you haven't stopped by lately, I personally invite you to come see how AVH is Leading the Way to a Healthier Future.
