Women’s Hospital Grand Opening Celebration

On January 8, 2011, Hamot Health Foundation delivered on its promise to elevate the level of healthcare for women and infants in our community as the ribbon was cut on the $50 million Hamot Women’s Hospital. The community celebration signified a more than three-year building project and eight-year commitment by the Hamot Board of Trustees.
