About Redington Fairview General Hospital

Redington-Fairview General Hospital (RFGH) has been providing care as an independent, community hospital in Skowhegan, Maine since 1952, when the first community-owned Fairview Hospital was incorporated. In 1962, a new 49-bed facility was built, and following a merger with the Redington Hospital in 1969, a new south wing was added, increasing bed capacity to 92.

In 1989 another addition was completed to allow for expansion of growing ambulatory care services. In 1993 a new Emergency Department and a newly equipped and renovated Radiology room were opened.
To ensure that RFGH would continue to provide the best health care possible for our community, a major construction and renovation project was completed in 1996. The project included a new Special Care Unit, operating suite, ambulatory surgery unit, Birthing Center, and Clinic as well as expansion of the Radiology Department, Laboratory and Oncology service.

In 2009, a new 60,000+ square foot medical office building connected to the hospital at the ground and first floor levels was completed. This ecologically-friendly, three story building houses many of the hospital’s outpatient primary and specialty services including primary care, pediatrics, neurology, general surgery, OB/GYN, and orthopedic surgery.

Today, RFGH is a 25-bed critical access facility that provides health care for more than 30,000 residents living in Somerset County - its primary service area, which extends from Skowhegan to the Canadian border. The hospital continues to grow and add services to meet the needs of its population.

Founded in a tradition of community service, and strengthened by a readiness to respond to change, Redington-Fairview General Hospital looks forward to a bright healthcare future — for our employees, medical staff and first and foremost — for those we serve. Our patients receive high quality modern health services while enjoying personalized care close to home. At RFGH our patients are also our neighbors and friends.
