In Washington County

New Healthcare Community

Previously occupied by Family Dollar and Rite Aid, a transformed building on Route 1 is now Machias Community Health Center, a state-of-the-art medical facility in Washington County, Maine.

Genesis played a critical part by making a loan that helped Eastport Health Care purchase and renovate the property. We are committed to supporting local community development that makes comprehensive healthcare services accessible.

“Genesis helped us create a space designed to meet the needs of our patients of all ages in Washington County. Thousands more people will receive care every year.”
—ELLEN KRAJEWSKI, MPH, Eastport Health Care CEO
A nonprofit, federally qualified community health center experiencing tremendous growth in the number of patients it serves, Eastport Health Care provides essential primary care, dental, and mental health services in Eastport, Calais, and Machias. The Machias health center integrates primary care with a pediatrics practice.
