St. Mary's Maine Covenant
St. Mary's Maine Covenant is a not-for-profit division of St. Mary's Health System made up of St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center, St. Mary's d’Youville Pavilion, Community Clinical Services, Inc., and other affiliated physicians. The organization is similar to a Physician-Hospital Organization (PHO) except it is managed totally by St. Mary's Health System.
Physicians who choose to affiliate with the St. Mary's Maine Covenant are able to participate in managed care contracts that are negotiated on behalf of St. Mary's Maine Covenant members. This allows managed care companies to sign one contract with the St. Mary's Maine Covenant versus them contracting with each individual provider separately.
