  • E4H Environments for Health Architecture worked with LincolnHealth to design a Medical Office Building with a wide range of services in Damariscotta, Maine.

    LincolnHealth, a MaineHealth member organization, recently completed a $13.7M medical office building at the Damariscotta campus. The facility houses primary, specialty, and behavioral care services which were previously spread among four buildings on LincolnHeath’s riverside campus.

    A ground floor community room that provides for large group activities, such as staff or community meetings, and the psychiatry practice for Maine Behavioral Healthcare.

    A first floor including primary care, pediatrics and internal medicine. A second floor with a specialty practice area for OBGYN, surgery, orthopedics, ENT, and urology.

    In developing the facilities plan over the course of two years with LincolnHealth, E4H modeled the building after its Dartmouth-Hitchcock Nashua model. To customize the model for a smaller rural provider, E4H created contiguous provider spaces between dedicated off-stage and on-stage areas.

    The incorporation of a perimeter corridor was central to this design, allowing for improved patient wayfinding and more natural light throughout the facility. Exam rooms on both floors are universal, allowing blurred practice lines between provider groups. The consult rooms on the perimeter face the outside wall along the periphery of the corridor bringing in natural light with the advantage of being converted in the future to exam rooms if needed for additional flexibility.
