In the Community

A Valued Community Partner

Martin's Point is committed to building strong communities through our direct work with patients, members, and beyond. We invest in our communities in many ways, such as:

  • Providing approximately $200,000 each year in medical services free-of-charge to patients with no or insufficient coverage.
  • Investing our dollars and volunteer time in charitable organizations and causes that make an impact on the health and well-being of the communities we serve.
  • Supporting our employees in their community involvement and volunteer service through a volunteer time-off policy which makes it easier for them to volunteer and serve on community boards and committees, as well as monetary support to charitable organizations and efforts in which our employees are engaged.

Martin's Point is proud to provide financial donations to hundreds of health care and community non-profit and charitable organizations. Some of the organizations we have supported this year include: the American Heart Association, Southern Maine Agency on Aging, American Diabetes Association, American Red Cross, Northeast Passage, and the Oasis Health Network.

Featured Sponsorships

Maine Senior Games

Every year, hundreds of athletes aged 45 and older participate in the Maine Senior Games, a program of the Southern Maine Agency on Aging. Over 25 individual sporting events are held from June through October at various locations, mostly in Cumberland County. Many Martin's Point employees and Generations Advantage members compete in the "Games" and volunteer at various events. 2014 marks the seventh consecutive year that Martin's Point Health Care is the lead sponsor of the Maine Senior Games.

"Maine Senior Games will continue to grow as long as we continue our inspiring and unique partnership with Martin's Point Health Care," said Jo Dill, Maine Senior Games Coordinator. "We are both interested and dedicated to the well-being of other people and helping them live healthier lives."

The opening ceremony of the 2014 Maine Senior Games takes place on Sunday, June 1, at 10:30 am at Scarborough High School, followed by an "Explore Track & Field" event. A 5K Road Race is also being held at 9 am that morning. Other events scheduled throughout the summer and fall include men's and women's 3-on-3 basketball, golf, archery, tennis, cycling, swimming, pickleball, bowling, table tennis and track and field. View the full Senior Games Schedule.

Athletes who win medals in the 2014 Maine Senior Games qualify to participate in the 2015 National Senior Games being held Minneapolis, Minnesota in July 2015.

Heart Walk

On Sunday, May 18, hundreds of walkers will converge on Portland's Back Cove for the 2014 Southern Maine Heart Walk. Martin's Point is once again the "Welcome Home" sponsor and will be greeting all walkers as they finish the 3.5 mile loop with smiles and cheers.

The annual Heart Walk, organized by the American Heart Association, raises much needed funds for heart disease research, education, and prevention. Martin's Point is a longtime partner of the American Heart Association and wholeheartedly supports their mission of building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

Heart Walk events begin at 8:30 am with educational displays, heart health education, family friendly activities, and a heart healthy breakfast.

Tour de Cure

On Sunday, June 18, cyclists from all over Maine and New Hampshire will be participating in the American Diabetes Association's Kennebunks Tour de Cure. This bike event features routes of varying lengths, so riders of all ages and levels can participate to help raise critical funds for diabetes education, research, and advocacy.

For the sixth year in a row, Martin's Point is serving as the Red Rider sponsor. Red Riders are cyclists who have type 1 or type 2 diabetes. The purpose of the Red Riders is to support everyone who lives with diabetes, showing the courage it takes to live everyday with this condition. According to the ADA, being a Red Rider means "You are not alone! You can ride to thrive with diabetes. With hundreds of riders who may share a similar story, and hundreds more to support you, being a Red Rider can help you with your first mile or your millionth – in your fight to live a healthier life! Riding your bike is a great way to stay in shape and exercise is extremely important for everyone with diabetes."

All routes start at Wells Reserve at Laudholm and, with the exception of the 5K, follow Maine's scenic coastline. View more information about the event
