ORONO, Maine — Sunbury Medical Associates has closed its facilities in Hampden and Orono and moved the medical providers to other offices.
“We moved our practice that was in the Hampden [Family Medicine] building five miles down the road to a brand new facility” in Winterport, Sunbury Medical CEO David Savell said Tuesday afternoon.
Orono Family Medicine patients were transferred to Sunbury’s Bangor location, 133 Corporate Drive, as of Monday. Hampden Family Medicine moved Nov. 12.
The facilities had one medical practitioner each, according to Savell. Those practitioners are now serving their patients in the new locations.
Savell said the moves make financial sense for Sunbury, and that its medical providers would be able to see more patients in their new facilities.
“In order to make it more economical, we did all the moving in one big pass,” Savell said.
Sunbury Medical also plans to open a new walk-in clinic at its Bangor location on Nov. 26, according to Savell. The medical provider also has offices in Brewer, Corinth and Hermon.
