BRUNSWICK — A Brunswick hospital that hopes to merge with the corporate parent of Central Maine Medical Center is now being targeted for a merger with a competing hospital.

Under a proposal filed Wednesday with the state, Parkview Adventist Medical Center would merge with Mid Coast Hospital, with Parkview’s intensive care, inpatient and outpatient services and emergency departments to be consolidated at Mid Coast.

Mid Coast President and CEO Lois Skilling said Thursday that Brunswick is the smallest community in the Northeast that’s trying to support two hospitals. Skilling said merging the two would achieve $25 million a year in cost savings.

Lewiston-based Central Maine Healthcare last month filed its own proposal to take over Parkview and keep the hospital open. Parkview’s board supports the Central Maine proposal.
