An anonymous patient has donated $1 million to Eastern Maine Medical Center’s modernization project.
The money was given in honor of Doctor Felix Hernandez, the medical director of Surgical Services, and the entire team that cared for the patient.
Hospital officials say the gift will support the new Cardiac Surgical and Critical Care Units.
They’ll make up the fifth floor of the new hospital tower under construction.
Work on the $289 million facility started last summer.
