Pines Celebrates Five Years of Providing Compassionate, High Quality Care at Kimball

Fort Fairfield, Maine – A little over five years ago, groundbreaking was taking place for a new Primary care health center in friendly Fort Fairfield. Since this time, the health center, known as Kimball Community Health Center, has played a key role in healthcare stability for the community.

“Primary care is a piece of heath care that considers the whole person from a physical and behavioral health perspective. An important factor in noticeably improving the quality of a person’s life is making sure our communities have appropriate access to care they need and deserve. At Kimball, our patients are able to receive a multitude of services all under one roof. With primary and behavioral health care, a full lab onsite to rehabilitation services with the Cary Medical Center team, Kimball can be your comprehensive healthcare home.” said Lisa Caron, Chief Operating Officer at Pines Health Services.

“The health center was named after Dr. Herrick Kimball, to recognize his guidance and development of Fort Fairfield’s Community General Hospital back in the late 40’s.” said Libby Gardner, RN and Practice Manager at Kimball Community Health Center. “I was once told that Dr. Kimball continuously went above and beyond his duties of a physician, he was a true leader. His vision of healthcare is much like our philosophy here at Pines, which is to always provide the highest quality of care, ultimately improving the lives of those we serve. With services such as Same Day Access, we make it easy for our patients to receive care right away which allows us to successfully deliver on an affordable, high quality, patient-centered healthcare experience.”
