Calais Community Hospital (CCH) announced to staff today that a motion is being filed with the Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Court and the Creditors Committee by Down East Community Hospital (DECH) in Machias to allow DECH to purchase the assets of CCH. 

The motion states that DECH’s intent is to operate the hospital as a critical access hospital providing substantially the similar services as those provided by CCH.   More details will be made available as this process moves forward.

The draft plan being submitted by DECH is being generally supported by the CCH Board of Directors with several details still to be worked out between the parties.
