History & Values

As you get to know Quarry Hill, you’ll notice something special: We’re not part of some big, faceless corporation. We’re homegrown, locally owned, and managed by people you’ll probably run into at the grocery store.

Our commitment to community goes back to the opening of our predecessor, the Camden Community Hospital (CCH), in 1960. CCH was a true community hospital. Neighbors and summer visitors alike contributed to the building fund-so generously, in fact, that the modern, fully equipped hospital was able to open debt free. In 1976, the town added a 203-bed wing dedicated to providing long- and short-term nursing care plus rehabilitation services. The two facilities became known collectively as the Camden Community Hospital and Health Care Center.

The hospital closed in 1982, following the opening of Penobscot Bay Medical Center in Rockport, but the health care center continued to provide nursing care. In 1996, a task force consisting of members of the community, local government officials, and others began looking for new uses for the old hospital site. The concept of an extended-care retirement community emerged as the best way to serve the area’s healthcare needs; and in 2002, the original hospital and nursing home were taken down, making way for Quarry Hill.

Today, Quarry Hill continues the tradition of caring for the people of Midcoast Maine by providing unsurpassed independent living, assisted living, short- and long-term nursing care and rehabilitation, and specialized memory-loss care. We’re a proud member of Pen Bay Healthcare, committed heart and soul to the well-being of the people we serve.
