Hyperbaric Facilities in Maine

The two primary Hyperbaric Facilities in Maine (St. Mary’s, Lewiston and St. Joseph’s, Bangor) are no longer accepting emergency patients after regular business hours (8am-5pm). Most hyperbaric facilities in New England operate under similar policies. This means that in Maine, a diving injury requiring hyperbaric treatment that occurs during non-business hours will most likely be referred to the 24-hour hyperbaric facility at Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary/Massachusetts General Hospital.
In case of a diving accident call 911 and the emergency physician will make contact with the hyperbaric facility directly or through the Diver’s Alert Network (DAN). IMH recommends DAN insurance and IMH members will be required to have DAN for any IMH-directed volunteer diving projects in Maine. Be safe!
