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!

Locally, we have just come through a very concerning period of COVID positivity in the greater Houlton region. While we continue to see SOME level of COVID-positive testing each day in the region, the numbers have slowed recently from the raging levels we were seeing just two weeks ago where we saw numerous hospitalizations and, yes, loss of life. We know that masking, social distancing and strong hand hygiene works. When we do all the right things, we prevent COVID positivity rates from skyrocketing. As we now head into the Christmas Season and the New Year, we must once again be evermore careful about what we do. Plan your Christmas and New Years social interactions very carefully to keep yourself and your loved ones safe. Now is not the time to let your mask down, or to give up on social distancing. Now is the time to stay the course.

So here’s where we’re at, the sun is just about to start shining on the beginning of the end of this Pandemic, but we aren’t out of the darkness yet. We’ve got some difficult days ahead, so let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Houlton Regional Hospital will be receiving our initial allotment of recently approved Moderna Vaccine for essential Healthcare workers within the next few days. We will be following CDC guidelines to make sure our vital Healthcare workers are vaccinated to ensure that we’re ready and able to care for the greater Houlton Community. We do not have information yet on when vaccine will be available for the public, but we will be sure to share this information with you just as soon as we know something more. Stay tuned.

Pictured above  are Houlton Regional Hospital’s CEO, Shawn Anderson and Chief Operating Officer, Gina Brown, RN. 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!”
