The Mission of the DFD Russell Medical Center is to ensure that everyone in our communities has access to, and is provided with, the highest quality primary health care, regardless of ability to pay.
The vision of DFD Russell Medical Center is to maximize the health and well being of people in our communities. As a community health center, we are responsible to the community for proactively identifying, developing, and improving programs to address the full spectrum of health and behavioral health needs in our community, thereby reducing the need for costly treatment due to preventable causes. Our programs emphasize prevention, health promotion and reaching out to our community by providing services in a culturally sensitive manner.
DFD Russell Medical Center (DFDRMC) was started in 1975 as an independent public/private partnership by concerned residents of Leeds, Maine and the 6 surrounding towns following the death of the area's only physician, Dr. Daniel Frank Davis Russell. The Medical Center was named after Dr. Russell and was formed to provide affordable and accessible health care to its area residents. It is guided by a 9 member Board of Directors comprised of patients and residents from the service area with patient services provided by 5 physicians, 2 nurse practitioners, 2 mental health providers, 2 physician assistants and a certified nurse midwife. DFDRMC providers utilize an electronic medical record system to enhance the quality of care, improve patient safety, and track clinical outcomes.
