CRH Announces DECH Purchase Plan

February 19, 2021

Calais Regional Hospital (CRH) 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 CRH. 

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 CRH.   More details will be made available as this process moves forward.

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