Martin’s Point re-opens Biddeford location

Martin’s Point Health Care is relocating its Biddeford practice and opening its doors to a new health care center located in the heart of Biddeford’s medical park. The custom-built 6,500-square-foot building was designed in partnership with architectural design firm SMRT, and continues the standard that Martin’s Point has set with the opening of its Gorham Health Care Center last year. The open and collaborative space focuses on patient flow and experience, addressing patient needs in a forwardthinking way. The new facility is bathed in natural light and features warm and welcoming patient areas, talk rooms and a community room for special events and gatherings.

Guided tours are 1 to 3 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 13 at 61 Barra Road, Biddeford. replaces a booster station that has had recent operational challenges, provides much-improved reliability to Maine Water’s distribution system in an important economic corridor, along Route 111. The project was an infrastructure investment of $875,000, part of the more than $6 million that Maine Water has invested in northern York County since it bought Biddeford and Saco Water Company in late 2012.

“You wouldn’t think a tour of a pump station would be that exciting, but it was,” Casavant said. “This water system needs major upgrades that could not be put off any longer, and it’s gratifying to see firsthand that they’re implementing the plan. This part of York County is revitalizing itself, and it’s absolutely essential for basic infrastructure to be in place and reliable.”
