Central Maine Medical Center Will Not Lose Federal Funding

Jun 13, 2019

Central Maine Medical Center is no longer at risk of losing federal funding for deficiencies in safety and quality.

CMMC officials announced in a press release Thursday that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services found the hospital in compliance after it undertook a plan of correction. Earlier this year, federal surveyors identified issues with patient care at CMMC, including one instance in which a patient in the emergency room with a spinal injury was paralyzed.

In a written statement, the chief quality officer at Central Maine Healthcare says the hospital has focused on improvements in patient evaluation, record-keeping and staff training.
