Maine hospitals contributed $10.2 billion and 66,870 direct and indirect jobs to the state’s economy in 2016, according to a report released last week by the Maine Hospital Association. “Maine hospitals' primary mission is to heal the sick and injured and improve the health of our communities, but a very important byproduct of that is the enormous economic contribution we make to our communities,” said MHA President Steven Michaud.
