We participate in a number of community activities, including: medical oversight of a senior exercise program, flu shot clinics, EMS support for local events, school programs, and a house-number sign program.
The Southwest Harbor-Tremont Nursing Service, Inc., which operates the ambulance service, is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. We are governed by a Board of Directors of community members. Our annual budget is about $280,000. Medicare, MaineCare, insurance payments and co-payments support only about half. Taxpayers of the Towns of Southwest Harbor and Tremont contribute a little over a third.
