Penobscot Community Health Care (PCHC) has been named a "Leader in LGBT Healthcare Equality" for the fifth year in a row in the Healthcare Equality Index, an annual survey conducted by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation. PCHC was the only healthcare facility in Maine to achieve the status and earned top marks for its commitment to equitable, inclusive care for LGBT patients and their families.
PCHC hosted “A Home for the Holidays” Benefit Dinner and Auction at the Bangor Conference Center on December 2nd to raise final dollars to complete critical facility renovations in the comprehensive shelter, health clinic, and transitional housing units at Hope House Health & Living Center. More than 300 community members, local leaders, and businesses were in attendance to support those who are homeless in our community. The event raised almost $100,000 in sponsorships from the generosity of 43 local businesses, community organizations, and individuals. PCHC also rasied $17,000 from donated items acutioned at the event.
