The rehabilitation center in the Barbara Bush wing at Maine Medical Center will get a little bigger and better thanks to the parents of a Falmouth teen who wanted to give back after doctors helped their child recover from a serious illness.
John Lamb, Maine Med's communications director, says the Herald-Pingree Fund, which is sponsored by the Portland Press Herald and U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree, donated...$30,000 to make the...project a reality.
