Strong Area Health Center opened its doors in Franklin County in 1986. The area holds a rich family history for many of the staff, connecting them to the surrounding communities of Avon, New Vineyard, Phillips, and Strong. Patients from Farmington and beyond utilize the health center as well. In 2001, a determined community board fulfilled their vision, facilitating the center's transition into a modern, well-equipped facility utilizing the latest technology. Our professionals work together with our patients of all ages and provide a "medical home." Click here to learn more and to watch a video: Patient-Centered Medical Home
In January 2003, further expansion was completed and our state-of-the-art dental center enabled Strong to become the first HealthReach facility to offer oral health care. A coalition of local residents and service providers worked with HealthReach for several years to plan the program and obtain funding for this important endeavor.
Nestled between the Western Maine communities of Farmington and Rangeley, the town of Strong sits just north of a bend in the Sandy River. Our rural community in the hills is ideal for a variety of outdoor activities including hiking, swimming, fishing and snowmobiling with just a short drive to several ski locations. In addition, travelers come to Western Maine to enjoy visiting Smalls Falls, a spectacular set of waterfalls located just minutes from Strong. The snow-capped mountains, vivid fall foliage, and moose-spotting opportunities attract the young and old alike.
