Non-Discrimination & Accessibility

Nondiscrimination Statement For Patients

Discrimination is against the law. PCHC complies with applicable Federal civil rights laws and does not discriminate, exclude people, or treat them differently on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, sex (including pregnancy and sex stereotyping), gender identity, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic protected by law.

PCHC provides free aids and services to people with disabilities to communicate effectively with us, such as qualified sign language interpreters and written information in other formats (large print, audio, accessible electronic formats, other formats).  PCHC provides free language services to people whose primary language is not English, such as qualified interpreters and information written in other languages. If you need these services, contact PCHC’s Civil Rights Coordinator.

If you believe that PCHC has failed to provide these services or discriminated in another way on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, sex (including pregnancy and sex stereotyping), gender identity, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic protected by law, you can file a grievance with PCHC’s Civil Rights Coordinator in person or by mail (103 Maine Avenue, Bangor, Maine 04401), by phone (207-992-9200), by fax (207-907-7077), or by email (civilrights@pchc.com). If you need help filing a grievance, PCHC’s Civil Rights Coordinator is available to help you.
