Infrastructure

The region's largest municipality

Greenville is the region’s largest municipality and is the primary center for services, including town offices, police and fire departments, public water & sewer services, Greenville Consolidated School (K-12 public charter school), and Charles A. Dean Memorial Hospital (including doctors’ offices, ER and ambulance services, as well as day-surgery and outpatient services). State agencies with satellite offices in Greenville include Inland Fisheries & Wildlife and the Maine Forest Service.

Education

Greenville Consolidated School (K-12)

More than 200 area children attend daily classes in the handsome, brick building that’s outfitted with science labs, AP classes, and a 700-seat auditorium. (More kids are welcome. According to Principal Kelly Mcfayden, the school could teach another 200 students without having to add to the rigorously-maintained and updated, circa-1935 facility.) Consistently ranked among the top high schools in the State of Maine, the school has a four-year graduation rate of 92%, and students earn an average SAT score of 1,370. In 2014, the school was named by The Washington Post as one of “America’s Most Challenging High Schools,” among just six Maine schools to earn recognition.

Healthcare

C.A. Dean Memorial Hospital

The 25-bed C.A. Dean Memorial Hospital also earns national awards and rankings. The Greenville-based facility is a member of Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems, one of the nation’s top-100 integrated healthcare networks. Designated as a critical-access care hospital, C.A. Dean Memorial is an “Excellence in Patient Care Award Winner”. As needed, the hospital is able to quickly respond to emergencies in remote areas via helicopters and landing pads set up around Moosehead Lake. Stabilized patients may then be immediately transported to the Bangor Trauma Center.

Highway transport to and from the Moosehead Lake Region is along state routes and U.S. highways.
