Their ER services have the advantage of being very cut and dried, no ordering of tests just to cover their butts and no 6 hour waits, for the most part.
Inpatients have the advantage of being seen by their own provider or a hospitalist, not student doctors. They don't have indepth monitoring capabilities that larger hospitals do but generally transfer out anyone that needs it.
They are good at what they do, but they don't do everything. Mayo will stabilize and transfer and in most cases if you are sick enough to be transferred out you would be better off getting immediate care rather than making a long trip.
This hospital is okay if you have a broken leg, however if you are in congestive heart failure it would pay you to by pass this hospital and go to Eastern Maine Medical Center. This hospital can handle a simple cold or a flu but when it comes to other factors that could mean life or death.. they simply can not handle it..
