New Parking Garage Open at EMMC 

It’ll now be easier to find a parking space at Eastern Maine Medical Center.The hospital celebrated the opening of a new parking garage on campus.It will not only provide better access to patients and visitors to the hospital, but it will also be a big help to employees.For years, more than 300 employees have been asked to park off campus, then were bused in.This new parking garage will mean they can all return to campus, or as some put it, they’re coming home.”Our moving out caused anxiety for all of us. Travelling has also added minutes on either ends of our days, minutes that none of us have in our busy work day or in our home responsibilities. Berta Burbank was part of the travel team, and although she says it was hard, it was the right thing to do to make things easier for patients.Burbank also says she’s happy that she won’t have to do that anymore.
