Wyman's of Maine Donates $25,000 to DECH Expansion

Down East Community Hospital is the proud recipient of a $25,000 donation from Wyman's of Maine.

"The charitable giving from the local community and businesses for the Emergency Department expansion has been astounding.  With this very generous donation, Wyman's is helping us build a future for health care in Washington County," stated DECH Board Chair, David Whitney.  "We are honored to be a recipient of their charitable giving."

 The campaign for Down East Community Hospital's new Emergency Department will transform emergency care in our community.  We know that our community needs and deserves an Emergency Department that will better accommodate current volume and improve patient privacy and comfort and so do companies like Wyman's who generously invest in their community.  We are, again, humbled by the generosity of this community." DECH President and CEO, Dennis Welsh.
