On September 30, 2021, Spectrum Healthcare Partners celebrated its 25th anniversary. 25 years ago, Spectrum was formed as the result of a merger of 5 medical practices: 2 anesthesiology groups, 2 radiology groups, and 1 pathology group. Since then, we have integrated over 10 other practices into Spectrum as well as expanded into other communities and hospital relationships.
At Spectrum’s inception, the physicians who founded our organization created a healthcare model that was largely unheard of at the time: a multispecialty medical practice that was both physician-owned and physician-directed. Over the years, we grew from a relatively small medical practice to one of the largest healthcare organizations in the state of Maine, with over 200 physicians practicing in the areas of anesthesiology, orthopaedics, pain management, physiatry, pathology, radiation oncology, radiology, and vascular and interventional services. This, coupled with our nearly 500 employees dedicated to support the mission and our clinical care, has positioned us to be strong, resilient, and a beacon for independent minded physicians.
We are pleased to share the following video with you. In this video, our founding physicians and other physician leaders describe Spectrum’s origins and share their insights about our progress through the years.
