Sale of Corinth medical clinic to Mayo hospital complete; facility to reopen March 18

By Alex Barber, BDN Staff

CORINTH, Maine — Newly acquired and renamed Corinth Medical Associates will open on March 18, Mayo Regional Hospital announced Friday.

Mayo Regional Hospital, based in Dover-Foxcroft, completed its purchase of Corinth Family Medicine from Sunbury Medical Associates on Friday. The clinic will be closed March 11-16 for renovations, Mayo spokesman Tom Lizotte said in a statement.

The sale includes the 5,100-square-foot building at 492 Main St. in Corinth, which has 10 examination rooms, five offices and laboratory space.

“Mayo has negotiated with providers and office staff employed at the Corinth office, and four current Corinth employees will continue to work there,” Lizotte said in the statement. “These include Anette Poulin, PA-C, office coordinator Julie Wilcox, one medical assistant and one front desk staff.”

As a result of the completed sale, Corinna Family Practice, which Mayo has operated since 2002, will close permanently on April 30. Between March 18 and April 30, the Corinna clinic will be open to patients for an average of only two days per week, said Lizotte.

Bryan Lundquist, M.D. and Karen Godin, PA-C, who are currently at the Corinna clinic, will move to Corinth Medical Associates. The shift of office staff will occur between March 18 and April 25, said Lizotte. Mayo is also arranging for other specialists to provide care at the clinic.

“All Corinna Family Practice patients will be invited to follow Dr. Lundquist and physician assistant Godin to Corinth, if they wish,” said Lizotte. “It is a 16-mile trip between Corinna and Corinth, along Route 11 through Exeter. Corinna patients will also have the option of transferring to existing Mayo practices in Dexter.”

Mayo Regional Hospital operates medical practices in Dover-Foxcroft, Dexter, Corinna, Milo and Guilford.

Currently, Sunbury Medical Associates operates medical practices in Bangor, Brewer, Hermon and Winterport.

Appointments at Corinth Medical Associates may be scheduled by calling 285-3435.
