BANGOR, Maine — When a LifeFlight helicopter landed carrying critically injured Yehoshua Hoffman, the first casualty taken from an accident scene on Interstate 95 in Argyle on Monday, Eastern Maine Medical Center was ready.
Patient care administrator Karen Clements and Dr. Jonathan Busko, the hospital's emergency department physician, had set the hospital on an increased-readiness level. St. Joseph Hospital of Bangor, the regional trauma center's backup, was notified.
