Recent updates at Thayer Center for Health include latest technology, welcome center

Investments in comfort and state-of-the-art technology continue to be made at the Thayer Center for Health in Waterville. The state’s largest comprehensive outpatient center offers 24/7 emergency services as well as key outpatient care.

Last month the welcome center was renovated at the main entrance. Staff and volunteers at the welcome center help patients and families navigate the building to find the services they need. Valet parking is available at the main entrance.

Also last month, new state-of-the-art digital MRI equipment was added at Thayer. The wide-bore machine has faster scan times and is ideal for those who have claustrophobia. In addition to these comfort measures, MRI access has expanded hours to include evenings and weekends.

Additionally, robotic surgery is available at Thayer. The robot helps MaineGeneral surgeons perform complex procedures on an outpatient basis. Surgeries with the robot at Thayer are minimally invasive and enable patients to go home the same day as their surgery.
