Posted Feb. 18, 2014, at 4:17 p.m.

BELFAST, Maine — Seaport Community Health Center, located at 41 Wight Street in Belfast, has expanded its regular office hours to 7 AM to 8 PM (Monday-Friday) and 8 AM to 1 PM (Saturday). It also has an after-hours call system providing patient access by phone 365 days of the year. For all inquiries, or to become a patient of Seaport CHC, please call 338-6900.

Formerly known as Seaport Family Practice, Seaport Community Health Center changed its name last July after joining Penobscot Community Health Care and became a federally qualified health center. This new status allows Seaport Community Health Center to offer a generous sliding scale to qualified patients without insurance. All insurances are welcome, including Medicare and MaineCare. There is a small additional charge for appointment after 5 PM and on Saturdays, which is most often covered by health insurance.

The staff of Seaport Community Health Center was recently joined by Dr. Peter Millard, family physician, Cheryl Deane, PA-C, physician assistant, and Dr. Carol Browning, consulting psychiatrist. The expanded coverage allows Seaport Community Health Center to offer same-day access for patients with acute/urgent medical problems. Pediatric nurse practitioner, Stephanie Taylor, now offers appointments after school for pediatric primary care.

Seaport Community Health Center is currently staffed by seven experienced physicians, psychiatrist, pediatric nurse practitioner, physician assistant, two licensed clinical social workers, RN care manager and RN triage nurse. Integrated health care is offered for the whole family. Services include newborn, pediatric, adult, and geriatric care; prenatal care and deliveries; women’s health and family planning; osteopathic manipulative therapy; nursing home and home visits; individual, couples, and group behavioral therapy; minor procedures; addiction care, and Integrative Medicine.

Seaport Community Health Center is a member of Penobscot Community Health Care (PCHC), a national leader in primary care transformation. PCHC is a federally qualified health center serving Bangor and the surrounding area. It was founded in 1997, and today employs over 200 clinicians in the medical, dental, and mental health fields.
