HOW YOU CAN HELP

During this time of increased COVID activity in our area, please minimize in-person visits to the hospital for Medical Records and Patient Accounts purposes.  Houlton Regional Hospital offers multiple ways to assist with these needs. 

For Medical Records, call ahead and ask for copies of your records to be mailed to you, or request a quick pick up at the Main Entrance.   The Medical Records Department can be reached at 207-532-2900, x2212.

For Patient Accounts, payments can be made:

  • via mail
  • on our website (www2.houltonregional.org/Billing)
  • in the black lockbox outside the hospital main entrance, or
  • over the phone 

We are pleased to mail a receipt for any payment – simply let us know if one is needed.  If you truly need to meet with the Patient Financial Counselor to discuss options, we do ask that you call ahead and schedule an appointment.  This will help us to allow for appropriate social distancing.  Our Patient Financial Counselor can be reached at 207-532-2900, x2282.

Thank You in advance for your assistance with these matters.  Stay Well and Stay Safe!

They have placed this banner in honor and recognition of all the HEROES working at Houlton Regional Hospital.  COVID-19 has brought many challenges and they both feel the staff here have worked diligently and stayed strong for our patients and the community; and faced those challenges one by one with courage that is to be admired. Shawn and Gina hope when you see this banner you are as proud of the work being done here as they are!

 

Coming to Houlton Regional Hospital to obtain a copy of Medical Records, or to Pay a Bill?

At this time we are still asking for everyone to call ahead to request Medical Record Forms. Please call 521-2212. Arrangements will be made for pick up, or they can be mailed or faxed. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!

Houlton Regional Hospital fully supports the philosophy that family visitation is important to the patient’s recovery and well-being, but due to the Pandemic our visitation remains limited.

  • Inpatients may have one designated visitor
  • Visits may occur anytime  between 1:00pm and 6:00pm
  • Visitors must be at least 18 years of age
  • Visitors must gel hands, wear a mask, and be screened at the door for signs of illness
  • Visitors will be given a sticker with their name, the date, and room number they are authorized to visit.
  • Exceptions may be made for visitors of Comfort Care patients and LDRP patients.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we strive to keep HRH a safe place for all who need our services!

Houlton Regional Hospital CEO Shawn Anderson said, “What we’re doing is working. Social distancing, hand washing and hand gelling, and masking are clearly making a positive difference in the spread of coronavirus in Maine. Just because our spread is the lowest in the nation, isn’t cause to ease up on what we’re doing. Let’s keep up the momentum!”

Older adults and people of any age with serious chronic medical conditions are at increased risk for severe disease and should consider postponing nonessential travel.

If you have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 or if you have recently (within 14 days) been in a community where there is ongoing spread of COVID-19 and develop symptoms of COVID-19, call your healthcare provider and tell them about your symptoms and your exposure. They will decide whether you need to be tested, but keep in mind that there is no treatment for COVID-19 and people who are mildly ill may be able to isolate and care for themselves at home.

  • Emergency warning signs include*:
    Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
    Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
    New confusion or inability to arouse
