Licensed Maine hospitals provide a broad range of medical services to sick, injured, or pregnant patients. Hospitals protect patients’ rights and assure patients receive appropriate health care. Maine hospitals provide inpatient care to people who require close medical monitoring. Hospitals also may provide outpatient care to people who need treatment but not constant medical attention.
