Emergency Care

Brighton FirstCare

There's more than one type of emergency, and more than one place for emergency care.

For major emergencies and traumas, your best choice is the Emergency Department at Maine Medical Center's Bramhall Street Campus, open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. For everyday accidents and illnesses, choose MMC's Brighton FirstCare, open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day.

In both cases, you receive the best, most appropriate treatment possible, provided by physicians and nurses specially trained in emergency medicine.

FirstCare for minor emergencies
No emergency is minor when it affects you and your family. We understand that at Brighton FirstCare. That's why we give major attention to every bump, cut and cough we treat. Because we specialize in minor emergencies, we can offer faster service too. In most cases, patients are on their way home within 80 minutes.

FirstCare for walk-in medical care
It's always best to call your doctor when you need medical care. But when your doctor isn't available, or when you don't have a doctor in the area, visit Brighton FirstCare for walk-in treatment. Our medical team will tend to you and your family as quickly as possible. Then they'll forward the record of your visit to your regular doctor for follow-up care.
